Question Hamster Wheel Needed

I recently bought a 28cm trixie wheel for my syrian hamster from ebay because she needed a larger one. Unfortunately, when it came it turned out it was really poorly constructed.

One part of the wheel was actually heavier than the rest, enough that it would always turn until that part was at the bottom. So while my hamster really tried to run on it, it kept getting harder-easier-harder-easier depending on where the heavy part was, so she kept getting thrown backwards every second or two.

I sent it back yesterday and sadly Muffin was without a big enough wheel again, so I planned on ordering another one asap. The problem is, I can't actually find a decent one online! This could be because of brexit, but I can't find any good 28cm wheels on ebay at all, and the only ones on amazon are over double a reasonable price!

So does anyone know any good places to get proper wheels? I really want to get one as fast as possible so that Muffin has what she needs, but I can't spend 40 on a wheel unfortunately.

I've just seen a 12in Silent Runner on Shpock for 15.
