Snipe Trailer Rollers source?

I need a couple of rollers but all the local agents listed here in Ireland have dropped Snipe for various reasons. One even said Snipe was supposedly gone bankrupt. I emailed Snipe but got no reply and none of the usual online trailer parts suppliers do Snipe rollers.

I'd appreciate any pointers or even better a couple of rollers! These are Diameter 115mm, black ribbed, blue centred 20mm bore rollers. They're only about 10-15 mm thick at the bearing surface so can't be replaced by the usual ribbed rollers. They're sometimes referred to as wobble rollers.

Thanks for any assistance. I'm sure most of us here know what a nuisance it this can be until replacements are found. Stainless washers and splitpins bought and about to be fitted to the remaining population!

I am certain Snipe are still trading - though they were bought out some years ago ?

This is their contact for spares from the current website >>> and I used them in June this year for the notorious "sealed" hubs ; I was surprsied to find out they were 60 cheaper than Trailer-tek, in stock, and delivered next day.

Sorted

Gordon Love Trailers answered the phone first and were very helpful with stock in hand. Now en route.

Thanks Lurcher and Jeff.
