Swapped rims between the 90 and the 95. Reasons were the 90's tires were about shot, and while new tires are in the very near future, MrsCrzy needed good ones for the snowstorm we are currently getting, My brother helped me earlier this week to get this done...now for pics

And here is why MrsCrzy needed the good tires, took about an hour ago

I didnt like it at first, but the 95's wheels on the 90 are kinda growing on me

Were there any fitment issues on the 95?

I put 16" 88-91 SSE white aerolite wheels on for the winter, and things were good. When I replaced the brake pads the next day, the caliper would NOT clear the rim and it had to be ground down a bit.

Jerry, none yet that I am aware of. I have only driven the 95 out of the driveway and up into the spot where its sitting, so there may be things I'm not aware of. Its a temporary situation though, I plan to get new tires on the crosslaces in a few weeks and put the 95's wheels back on the 95.

They mounted up without a problem though :)

I like the newer wheels on the old car, but not the other way around.

I like the 5 blade 95 wheels on the 90. I wan't quite sure how these wheels would work with on a 87-91, but after seeing these pictures, the look works really well.

I agree, it does work well.

The '90 wheels on the '95 however, it honestly looks photoshopped.

LOL Randall, no its not photoshopped, it really doesn't go well at all.

Here's an idea, what would blacked out crosslaces look like with white letter tires?

I think it would look really cool! Just leave the polished lip...
