All 9000s and 1988-1993 900s (and '94 900 convertibles) used the same bolt pattern. However, stock 900s used a 15"x5.5" wheel, while 9000s used 15"x6" (some also used 16"x6.5"). 900s prior to '88 used a different bolt pattern and the wheels are not compatible. Personally, I would stick with the slightly wider wheel of the 9000, but an '88-'93 900 wheel *will* fit your CSE. -Doug
