18x20 or 16x18 95? AFAIK, any 6.1 grommet set prior to parallel drilling version are inter-changeable to a substantial degree. The last editions were parallel drilled, so they will not work at all.

What do you mean by parallel drilling?

On older Wilson frames, when they drill holes around the curve (near the shoulders of the frame), the holes are slanted on the inside. Wilson's parallel drilling does not do that anymore. Holes for mains go in vertically and crosses go in horizontally. This changed the spacing between the holes, which is why older frames cannot use grommets developed for frames that are parallel drilled.

Copy/paste from another post I made about 6.1 grommets:

1) I've put grommets from a BLX1 (2010) on a Pro Staff Classic 6.1 16x18 and it was not an easy fit. It is possible with some work though.
2) I have spare grommets for a Pro Staff Classic, a KFactor 6.1, and a BLX2 6.1. I lined them up against each other and the Pro Staff Classic grommet locations on the bumper are different from those on the KFactor and BLX2 bumpers.
3) The KFactor and BLX2 grommets line up pretty closely with each other. I wouldn't be surprised if they were interchangeable.
