Default Silent Spinner Wheel?

I bought a 12 inch silent spinner wheel because I heard they are the best. I just read on a website that they can fall over easily and the hedgehog nails can get stuck in the middle parts. I'm a little worried now! Are these big problems that occur with these wheels all the time? Thank you!!

I have heard the same. You can cover the seam with tape and we have a gargen rock weighing down the base so it doesn't fall over. It's noisy but other then that I haven't had a broblem.

The Silent Spinner is dangerous for hedgies, yes. They're toe nails get caught in the crack, and get ripped off. They aren't silent either, and are easily tipped over. The raised lines on the silent spinner (not sure if it has them raised?) and comfort wheel can cause the feet to bleed, because they are hard on their feet. The only safe wheel is the Carolina Storm Wheel, Carolina Bucket Wheel, or home made bucket wheel.
