    Is 5 x 114.3 the same as 5 x 115? I really want these aftermarkets to it.

    what are you talking about? Wheels? if so I don't know about those metric sizes but if they're not the same there is a chance they wont fit but it's pretty close. if you're going to but these on the explorer they're probably not going to fit.

    We commonly refer to the Explorer bolt pattern as 5 x 4.5in, which translates to 5 x 114.3mm. 5 x 115mm translates to a difference of 0.7mm or 0.028in. That's less than 1/32 of an inch, or about the thickness of 8 sheets of paper. Pretty close. (I know you Canadians are laughing at our need to stick with ye olde inches)
