Put on 2:nd gen 20" OEM wheels on 1:st gen?

Hi Guys,
Tried to search in the forum for one hour now without finding the answer so I try with this post:

I have the first gen MO (2007) and have for a long time looking for some rim upgrade.

I came across a set of OEM 20" from 2:nd gen MO (2013) with stock tires 235/55/20.
ET on these rims is 50.

I have compared this with the stock wheels from my MO and all should be fine. ( Stock spec. 225/65/18 ET 40 )

Also I found a old post here on the forum where another guy have tried the similar setup and quote "Bolt on"

Based on this I decided to buy the new 20" set and put it on yesterday.
Sure, it was "Bolt on" and it looked great i would say! Refer to attached pic.

BUT!
When I went out for the testride all felt good in the beginning but after the first wide turn I start hearing some noice from the front wheel.
Turned down the windows and heard a small "sqratch noice" from the front. Seems the sound getting a bit worse when I turn the wheels a bit.
My feeling is that the sound comes from the brake area.
Maybe I just have noticed it by coincident and it's not comnected to the wheel upgrade.(?)

My question to you guys is if you have similar experience of putting 2:nd gen 20" wheel on 1st gen MO, or know some old post where this wheels setup is discussed?

Thanks for all support!

Do the simple thing first - pull the wheel and look for marks or indications of rubbing. Chances are it's something bent or loose, not a wheel fit problem or you'd be hearing things from other corners.

Yes, this is a good advise and is my plan as next step. I was just curious to see if someone else having the same setup facing similar challanges.
