OT: What to apply to squeaking wheels on Rimowa?

Hi all
My Rimowa salsa wheels are squeaking when moving slowly (when I'm rolling the suitcase at normal speed the squeak goes away). I believe WD-40 isn't right to apply onto the wheels - any other suggestions?
Thanks

I'd also like to know. I have a one year old Rimowa Topas Cabin bag that's squeaking like mad. In addition to the horrendous noise one wheel tends to get stuck in one direction, making it difficult to rotate it. I've travelled extensively with my Rimowa so there's of course been some wear and tear, but quality issues within one year seems nothing short of awful.

It seems like Rimowa is having quality issues with their wheels overall, as I have a few friends who've had problems with their Classic Flight cabin bags after just a trip or two.

You want a suggestion?

Find a Board which has 'luggage' as its subject.

Some lube like silicon lube or any other oil. WD40 isn’t a lube, so you’re right in not using it.
