I ordered wheels on this wonderful site that looked like they made more sense and replaced all eight on my dishwasher and FINALLY the dishwasher isn't the nightmare it has been. It took seconds to pop in the clip to the roller and pop it on the rack. Thank you PartsSelect

Only one axle was broken, but I replaced all 8 because GE had redesigned the axle to prevent future problems. Decided to just replace them all and be done with it. Took 10 minutes, start to finish and all is well.

Removed broken wheels & clips from the lower rack. Easily replaced the clips and wheels with the new clips & wheels which are better built then original. The dishwasher now operates better then in its new state because the bottom rack sits higher and the bottom arm swings more efficiently and the dishes are coming out cleaner.
