Wheel swap?

I need some advice.
I own a gen 3 zx10 i believe, it's a 2009.
Will the gen 4 zx10 (2011)
Wheels work with my gen3 bike?
The axle from my 09 is too small for the 2011.
I am searching eBay for rear bearing seal kit
For a 09 to fit into the 2011 wheel. Will this work?
The front wheel fits fine. I am having issues
With the rear wheel and spacing. Any advice

The gen 4 wheels look terrible in comparison to the first 3 gens. Don't do it, put that time and money towards a set of aftermarket if you want to switch.

Out of curiosity, why change to those wheels? They don't weigh any less or anything...

The rear wheel on the gen 4 is .6 lbs lighter than on the gen 3, I weighed them today.

did the wheel swap because i like the look of the gen 4 wheel opposed to the gen 3 wheel. the gen 4 is much smoother and looks good while moving
(call me shallow i know)

To me the easy answer to the rear fitmet issues is to have sleeve made. I think the difference is 5mm, so a sleeve made with a 2.5mm wall thickness would take up the difference. Just make sure it is about 3mm shorter then the hub width.
