help with spokes?

Hello im asking a question on spoke length.
I am getting a primo remix 36h 9 tooth hub soon from danscomp and im wondering if it will fit my 24 inch shrapnel fragment rims.
I have used many spoke calculators and none of them have my rims.

What i need to know is do i need to buy new spokes and what length do i need, or can i use the stock spokes.
The bike is a Sapient Titan 24 inch bmx bike from TheHouse.com

I buy my spokes from Dans, even if I didn't buy my hubs or rims from them. Call and tell them what you have and they can get you what you need.

Measure them yourself. Do that even if the calculator has your rims because rims vary (they get thicker as the extruder dies wear), nipples vary, and people measure differently.

Take two spokes. Measure their length. Insert them into opposite holes on the rim and thread nipples to your target depth (typically the slot bottom). Measure across the elbows with calipers. Add the total spoke length to your measurement to get ERD.

Do it again 90 degrees away. If that varies do the two diagonals. Average.

That's your ERD.
