yeah, but look at them closely, you'll notice that they are not the same wheels

look at the holes in between the spokes, they are similiar, but not the same

Yep, centennial wheels are painted black in the center. So yes, they technically are different I guess.

Are they the standard 6 wide also?

If so, they are not even worth pissing about.
