EXCELLENT (after some quick fixes)my hamster broke his plastic wheels twice, so i decided 2 get this one. when i got it, a hook was bent, and it was a little lopsided and squeeky, and it rattled the bars and bottom of the cage. good was that the mesh is too small for hamster tails to get caught in, and i wasnt worried about feet getting caught because my hamster was used to running really fast on wire wheels from livin in petsmart. i was able to solve all those problems.
BENT HOOK: take a pair of pliers and bend it straight. its wire!
SQUEEKY-NESS: put veggie oil on the axles, or someone earlier suggested putting tape on axles. hvnt tried that yet.
LOPSIDED: just deal with it, or squeeze it a little.
RATTLING: squeeze axles tighter, and/or put the wheel on a layer of bedding.
CHEWING: try putting little bit of lemon juice on the wheel where hammy chews, it is sour so they wont wanna chew anymore.
after those fixes, the wheel was as quiet as a "silent spinner" wheel, and my hamster loved to run on it! GREAT WHEEL, some problems with quick fixes, but its really NICE
