Rims and tires are the same. You should have done that in the first place. Hubs don't
go romp,romp.

cool Re: taurus vs.sable question

Definetely swapable. You can check the tires for uneven wear, feel the tread, specifically the shoulders. Any uneven wear or feathered edges can cause noise like you describe, usually caused by alignment issue. But swap the tires from the Taurus to be sure.
