15" and 16" center caps the same?

I'm looking for a center cap for my mustang. Found this one on ebay for a 15" rim (same style) and mine is a 16" rim. I'm assuming they are the same, but does anyone know for sure?


edit: forgot the link

those center caps are for the 16 inch waffle style rims and wont fit any other rims.

Thank you both. I just wanted to be sure they would fit my 16's. Money's tight so no new rims for a while might as well make these look OK.

I'm taking mine back to the brushed aluminum look with the horse painted either red to match the car or black.

probably just paint it black, just incase later on when you do sell them no one is complaining about a red horse... my .02

the waffle style were used on 94-95 gts (maybe 96 base models~) and again in 98 v6 mustangs (I think only on the sport package mustang v6's in 98)

The older center caps will not fit the 16" V6 wheels on newer cars, just for the record.
