    is there rust build up on either? Might just need to hit them with some sand paper and clean them up. I'm pretty sure they should fit on there. I'm not aware of any difference.

    I'm pretty sure they are. I know people have done this swap. The brakes are different but if he's keeping the brakes on there I think it should just swap right over. Not completely sure though, maybe I'm missing something.

    There is a very slight difference in center hole diameter. I tried this with the salad shooters on my 94 on my 99 and it wouldn't work.

    I can't believe you have never heard of these wheels as salad shooters.
