This product is a replacement
This product is a replacement for my Aeron chair that I have had for about 20 years. The service to replace these castors was seamless. Thanks.

Herman Miller is timeless
I've had my Aeron Herman Miller Chair for nearly 17 years and the only upgrade was taller rollers because of new carpeting. The new rollers were exactly top quality, just like the originals. Great Product, fair prices and durability. That says it all.

Great addition to a great chair
I just recently bought my 2nd Aeron chair, the 1st was purchase about 20 years ago, still looks new, but has been adopted by my wife. The older one is used on a hardwood store. My new one is used on a carpet and the 3-inch wheels roll great on the carpet.

How do you know what wheel to buy? there is no way to know!
I have a standard Aeron chair and during a move the caster was lost so I thought "this is not rocket science, how hard would it be to replace?" I chose the most standard wheel listed since my chair is totally standard - but when the wheel arrives it is too big compared to the others - there is no way of knowing whether it will be too big or small, you are rolling the dice whatever you do. Now I have one big wheel and 4 smaller wheels.

As an aside - I do believe the Aeron chair is the best chair on the market - I've worn the posture fixer products and the aeron chair was the best at making the posture acceptable when at work.

Top notch replacement for timeless seating
It's like a new chair! My Aeron office chair is well over a decade old. Still in pristine shape. Casters decided that it was time. Now I am gliding around my home office.

Wheel Upgrade
I have had 2 HM chairs for years and love them. Over time the old wheels were binding and dragging over the floor. Upgrading to the 3" wheels was a great move! Easy to install and they perform extremely well. They roll smoothly and effortlessly and they look better than the old 2.5"
I should have upgraded years ago!
Thank You HM!

My chair is AMAZING
I've had my Herman Milker desk chair for many years and was very happy with it. After years of use one of my 2 1/2" wheels came apart. I was thrilled to be able to order replacement wheels and decided to try the new 3" wheels instead. WOW what an incredible difference. I am so in love with this chair. It looks brand new after 10 years and I plan to enjoy it for many more years to come. Customer service at Hermsn Miller is FABULOUS. I was helped by Lisa and Chris who's follow-up with concern and kindness was Sensational in every way.

Great product!
My Aeron chair was a gift and I've really enjoyed it for several years - first in my cement floor home office in Atlanta, GA and now in my Louisiana home which is carpeted. The rollers here very difficult to move around and I needed to do something. Tested (and returned# some online offers which were supposed to work on this chair model #they didn't#. Bit the bullet and opted for these from your company. These were easy to install #the others were not), and I've enjoyed using them on this carpeted floor. THANK YOU!

How can I tell hardwood floor casters from carpet casters ?

I bought my Aeron from a used furniture dealer. He did not know which casters were already on the chair. I am using the chair on a hardwood floor. Visually they look identical to the picture of the hardwood floor caster. How can I tell if my casters are suitable for hardwood floors ?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2016
Best Answer: Hardfloor or carpet casters have a softer edge which helps prevent the floors from scratching as you roll over debris. They also provide a smoother and quieter roll on the hard surface.

Attached is a photo showing the difference between the two types of casters. Notice how the edge of the hardfloor or carpet caster differs from the carpet caster. If you have any additional questions, please contact the Herman Miller Store at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com
How do you replace old casters with new ones?

The old casters are disintegrating, leaving black plastic bits all over the floor, but it's hard to tell how to remove them. Or how they might be replaced.
A shopper on Jul 6, 2015
Best Answer: To replace the casters, follow these steps:

1) Lay the chair on it's back

2) Pull out the old casters by grabbing the base with your non-dominate hand and pulling the caster with your dominate hand. The caster should pull right out.

3) Push the new ones in. You'll feel them click in.

How many are in one box?

The description isn't clear whether you get one or a set in the box.
A shopper on May 30, 2015
Best Answer: When purchasing Casters, the pricing and shipping information is for one caster only. If you are looking for more than one caster, you will want to change the quantity amount in your cart from one, to the number of casters you are wanting.

If you have any other questions, please reach out to the Herman Miller Online Store at hmstore@hermanmiller.com or 888.798.0202.
Do the wheels come off for cleaning the hub ie hair?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
Best Answer: The casters can be removed from the base. However, they cannot be taken apart.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any additional questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
Do these fit the new Aeron Remastered chairs?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
Best Answer: Yes, the 3-inch Hard Floor or Carpet Caster will fit the new Aeron Chair.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
Do you have any castors that include a breaking option?

We would like castors that we can lock so that they do not move when we don't want them to - at least 2 out of 5 should work to stabilize the chair more, do you have such an option for castors?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2016
Best Answer: Herman Miller does offer a 2.5 inch hard floor or carpet braking caster. The braking caster will make the chair difficult to roll when the chair is not in use. When a user is sitting in the chair the chair will roll freely. These casters can be purchased through an Authorized Dealer. You can find a Dealer using this link - http://www.hermanmiller.com/where-to-buy.html

I have plastic feet on my Setu chair. Can I replace them with casters?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2015
Best Answer: The 4-star base is only offered with the swivel glide option due to stability reasons. We do not recommend using casters with the 4-star base.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Herman Miller Store at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
Which are the best casters for plush carpets?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2015
Best Answer: For thick or plush carpets, Herman Miller does recommend going with the largest caster, the 3-inch caster. The 3-inch caster will allow the chair to move through the thicker carper easier. The larger casters will also raise the base of the chair up so the chair doesn't get stuck in the carpet.

If you have any other questions, please reach out to the Herman Miller Online Store at hmstore@hermanmiller.com or 888.798.0202.
Can I switch my existing carpet glides on my caper chairs for casters?
A shopper on May 19, 2015
Best Answer: The Caper Stacking chairs require specific casters and replacement parts to make the conversion from glides to casters. These casters and replacement parts are not available through the Online Store.

An Authorized Dealer in your area would be happy to help order the necessary parts. To find the Authorized Dealer in your area, please follow this link: http://www.hermanmiller.com/Store/Find-a-Location

Which are the best casters for new hard wood floors?
A shopper on May 13, 2015
Best Answer: Both of our Hard Floor or Carpet Casters are great for hard wood floors. The only difference is the .5" inch that you gain from the 3" inch Hard Floor or Carpet casters.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com
are these good for regular caper caster chairs, and not just the multi purpose caper?

I've had my caper chair with casters for many years and the casters have come apart. Do these come in a set of 4? Will they fit my chair? Is it easy to take off the old and put on the new casters?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2015
Best Answer: The 3-inch hard floor or carpet casters would work with the Caper Multipurpose chair (5-star base), but will not work with the Caper Stacking chair. The Caper Stacking chair requires a different type of caster that would not be found on the Herman Miller Store site.
