Default My wheels don't fit! Change hub?

I just borrowed some cash and drove across half state to get wheels the don't fit. UHG......

Now I need to know what to do. I need rotors and was going to buy some this week for the front of the truck, can I buy 97 rotors instead of 99? Will the back be a problem as well?

There is a 1/4 inch difference between the sawblade wheels I have and the deerhoof wheels I just bought around the hub. The difference is the exact amount the hub raises up when it steps up to the top tier of it's three stage step as it goes back towards the rotor. That last step is stopping me from putting my wheels on.

One last passing thought...... whadda ya think about milling the center out on the wheels? The lugnuts center the wheel on these don't they? Not the hub. If I were running 99 wheels on a 97 the hubs wouldn't touch the centers.

Answered my own question on the rears. Looks like the answer is to mill the centers. Can't afford to take a loss on these wheels. Wish me luck. (anyone else done this?)
