Upgrading your office chair isn’t a cheap undertaking by any measure so if you can squeeze by with a few inexpensive upgrades to make your office chair more comfortable and pleasing to look at, it really pays off.

One thing worth noting: if you wheels are outright malfunctioning, call the company before replacing them.

I called the company and they sent me an upgraded replacement set and it’s been smooth rolling ever since.
