54mm is close to 2 1/8 inches. That is the traditional American size for snooker balls. The international standard is 2 1/16 or the metric equivalent, more or less. I think you want something like these:

I have not had any experience with that company -- it was just the first listing I found for that kind of set.

why not just use the 2 1/4 inch balls, I did that on a snooker table I had and had no problems with balls bouncing off of rails
