If they are for pets then a wire cage should never be used as it hurts their feet. It is like us working on a ladder all day, our feet "curl" around the rung instead of laying flat upon a solid surface and over time it harms the rabbits feet.
Of course if the rabbits are for meat then it does not really matter, so carry on.
You would not know it I know, me being an old sheep farmer, seeing plenty of lambs die, able to put down my own dogs, but I am a pure softee when it comes to rabitts. We have a pet bunny (named Bunny) who lives right in our kitchen. I have always loved rabbits!

what kind of resting mats do you use? I think I have the opposite problem as you (we get some serious heat), so I've been using either ceramic roof tiles or pieces of marble countertop I found, but I have been considering rubber mats as well (I have a girl rabbit who chooses to pee in the one corner of her enclosure that is a wood floor rather than wire) and I'm a bit concerned about her chewing on it.
Like you said, I give her a lot of other stuff to chew on, but it gave me pause.
