Hubcaps, Honda to Toyota

Someone is selling OEM 15" Honda Accord hubcaps for $20 total. I think it's a great buy since I need hubcaps, however, I have a 1994 Toyota Corolla. Will they fit? Or does the make not matter at all as long as the size matches?

I will probably make them all smooth for aero purposes, but I want to know if they should fit. Last time I bought hubcaps they fell off(but they weren't OEM)

Nevermind the honda hubcaps. I found someone selling 15" mooneye hubcaps for $40(total). If they fit right and they are the moon eye brand, they sell for $128 new

Good deal.

My question now: Does anyone have these? Have you seen an improvement in mpg? Do they stay on, or is there something I should do to help keep them from falling off? I think they are the snap on kind.

I can't speak to how the mooneye hubs are attached. Me, I pizza panned my hubcaps and attached them with pop rivets. If I had to guess, I'd say that I gained ~ 1 mpg with them.
