Default Entry Door Awning Wheel

I am looking for where I can obtain a new wheel for the entry door that rolls against the awning to protect it from being torn by the corner of the door when the awning is at a low angle. Any suggestions? This is for my 86 PT.

I have even seen them at the camping section of Wal-Mart. Surely you have some sort of camping store in your area. They have them. I've looked on line for awning door wheel and they are everywhere.

Get a small caster wheel at most harware stores and remove it from the mount and shaft.
Here is one from Harbor Freight as an example.

Thanks for the input. I ordered one from the Amazon in hopes that the mounting holes match up. I would prefer not to add any additional holes in the door.

Hey Richard,if the holes don't line up then drill a new hole in the wheel bracket.
NOT in the door!

I have one of those pressed fiber tail drag caster wheels (new) from when I owned the 88FC. it's yours if you can make a big enough mount for it. LOL

Well, I bought an awning roller from Amazon that looked like it would work. Looked is the keyword here. When I tried to install it (using the holes from the old wheel mount), I would need to move the whole assembly up. Then, I realized that whether I moved it up or drilled new holes in the door, that it still would not work as the roller would interfere with the rain gutter over the top of the door.

I am now in search of a replacement wheel which is also becoming a real feat. I need a plastic wheel that is 1.25" in diameter x .5" in width with a 3/16" bore. If anyone knows where to get one, that would be fantastic.
