I think those 13's do not fit 1.8 cars, but 1.6 cars with 1.8 breaks I don't know...I think you should try it.

Couple of things. If those are Rota RBs (which I'm sure they are) they will fit over REGULAR 1.8 brakes. Either on a 1.6 or 1.8 car.

I've never heard of an RX7 specific RB so I doubt they came off an RX7, but if they did then the bolt pattern will not work with a Miata. Find out what bolt pattern they are.

Those Hoosiers are OLD, and as such are done and should be destined for a tire wall or a swing. New these wheels are about $100 each, but they are hardish to find. Do not pay a cent for those tires.

$400 isn't a deal, but you aren't getting fucked either.
