Default Rim Fitment.

Will the rims from a 90 SSE fit a 95 SSEi and obviously vise versa?


Thanks

Yes. Same bolt pattern and likely identical offset.

I have 97 front brake parts on my 90 including spindles, calipers and rotors. During the first test drive after the swap, I noticed a moderate clunking sound that increased in frequency the faster I traveled. I found out the front left wheel (1990) was hitting the caliper (1997). I ended up grinding a small amount of material from the caliper so it wouldn't contact the wheel. The right side has never been a problem.

Perhaps a caliper casting out of specs?

They make different calipers for 15" wheels from 16" wheels. That might have something to do with it.

True, but the 90 rims are 16" as well
