Default Gen 1 Front Wheel on a Gen 2 ?

I was going to change the wheel bearings on my 08 and when I took off the speedometer drive cover I saw that the outer rim of the hub had broken off and and the pieces were in the speedo cover. I guess I need a new wheel? I'm wondering if a gen 1 wheel will fit on the 2nd gen. Can I switch over rotors?

Gen1 front wheel will work fine on a gen2 if you change the brake rotor.
