Helps steady me.
These 5" wheels are the same as are available at our local drugstore, but at half the price.
I bought "universal" walker wheels. To me, universal means fits all walkers. They don't fit, and returning them is a hassle, plus they will deduct money for a stocking fee. I am very disappointed, and my husband is not safe with the wheel less walker he has now. My only alternative is to purchase a new walker with wheels.
Easier mobility with the 5" wheels
When I read that these wheels were "rubber" I expected something soft and grippy. Instead, they are just as hard as the wheels I replaced. One plus though, changing the wheels gave me the idea to mount them on the inside of the walker legs which makes it much easier for my mother to navigate narrow spaces and go around corners.
