Inspired by the other caster-mod-topic I've been looking to replace mine casters as well. The ones linked in the other topic I couldn't order, or order with expensive shipping costs. After some measuring I've ordered these: https://www.wielenoutlet.nl/trolley-zwenkwiel-met-rem-100-mm-t6-100.html for € 6,53 apiece (they have shops for other countries it seems). Ordered also some M10 bolts to attach the new wheels to the SmokeFire.

Received them today, ran into a minor issue with the bolts. M12 bolts does fit in the SmokeFire, but not in the wheels. Had to drill the hole in the wheel, where the bolts goes through, a bit larger with a 12mm drill. Took a bit, but they're finally installed. And it's a huge difference!

The SmokeFire rolls much smoother, at least on my tiles. Noticeable less sound when rolling. And, of course, a few CM higher than with the default wheels. For me, personally, that's a huge win since the grill is now more at waist level.

Nice one! Thank you.
You probably need a few cm in height - you Dutchies are enormous!!!
