English term or phrase:rolling wheel
The following is an extract from a patent for a rubber crawler:
"The invention relates to a rolling wheel for a rubber crawler... Here, a pair of disk-like rolling members is disposed on a rolling wheel and arranged such that the rolling members roll beside projections of the rubber crawler. The rolling members have inclined surfaces formed according to the inclination of the sides of the projections. If lateral forces act between the rolling wheel and the rubber crawler, the sude surface of the proejctions and the rolling members come into contact with each other, and the contact force can be softened because the rolling members are freely rotatable."
I'm a bit unsure about "rolling wheel". I could translate it literally of course but I was wondering if there is a specific technical term in German.
