center cap interchangability?

i just picked up mx5 miata rims but arent gonna get my hands on them till later this week or beginning of next week. the rims are real cherry but are missing the center caps. i was wondering if my sport 17" rims center caps would fit or not? if not is there a good place i could pick those center caps up at? thanks in advance.

They should, which miata rims are they? I assume they are late model ones because otherwise they are 4 lug

i agree. they will probably be the same. mazda caps usually are. i have mazdaspeed3 caps on my rx8 wheels. and my stock mazda6 center caps are currently on my 97 626 wheels. lol

lol nice. yeah after looking both rims over. im 95% sure those caps are gonna fit. im gonna switch over the tires tomorrow since the miata rims have a smaller tire and my stocks have pretty much brand new treads. ill post pics once im done.

well, changed over those 205/45 for my 215/50 and got the wheels on my car. im not too sure if the miata wheels are significantly lighter than the sport stocks, but it does feel like the car has a little more pep. nothing drastic where you can feel it in the "butt dyno", but it feels like it in the steering wheel to me.

sorry for the crappy pic quality...took from my droid razr LOL...makes me miss my 4s for cell pics...

EDIT: one more question. what are good lugs that would fit these wheels? the stock lugs look oversized on these wheels. i want some slim lugs but dont know what type of lugs to pick up.
