Wheels from a '25 on a '26

I have been looking a long time for wheels for my '26 and haven't had any luck. I did manage to find a good set off a '25 for a reasonable price. Just wondering if there will be any size difference that will cause me any issues?

Brian, the F and M wheel hubs are the same front and rear. Just use the complete wheel assembly and matching tires and you're ready to go. The only problem is that the early '26's used a 1 1/2" brake drum, the same as the F models, and the later '26 M's used a 2" brake drum.

Thanks Don, I would be using them on my R. I measured and the drums on mine are 2" wide. I guess worst case, I would just have to switch with the drums I have providing they are the same diameter.
