Mine are fine with plastic wheels.
This lot have run miles round my layout at exhibitions without any problems. I always put a GF wagon with metal wheels behind the loco and I think this helps. All the others are Peco kits.

Also got a few Peco vans mixed in with GF vans just to give a bit of variety to my van train.

The old Parkside Dundas are now owned by Peco and now called Parkside. These can be a bit tricky getting the solebars in exactly the right position. They will hopefully have clearer instructions in future, and less will get thrown at the cat!

Peco have hinted they will expand the Parkside range.
I'll be interested to see if Peco replace the plastic wheels in their current wagon kit range with the far superior Parkside metal wheels.

My #1 complaint with Peco (& Parkside) kits is still that the N gauge kits don't include decals. It's not like they don't know how; their O gauge kits include suitable decals!

Well, I bit the bullet and ordered a few (10) Butterley style steel open wagons to build up my mineeral wagon rakes, Let's see how I get on with them.... I also bought farish wheels for them...
