2007 Ford Explorer bolt pattern

Not all
Ford lug patterns
are the same. This is important to remember because even if you have a spare set of Ford wheels, there's a good chance they won't fit your car. You'll need to choose a set that matches the lug pattern on your 2007 Ford Explorer—5x4.5 or 5 on 4.5.
Don't stress if you can't make heads or tails of those numbers. The lug pattern of a car can be described as follows:
# of bolts x diameter of the circle they form
Your Explorer's wheels have five lugs each, as indicated by the first number in the 5x4.5 measurement. The lugs are arranged in a 4.5-inch diameter circle, which can be seen in the second number.
The number of lugs and the diameter of the circle they form aren’t the only measurements you'll need. Specifics such as your Ford's wheel diameter, stud size, offset, center bore, and torque are also crucial.
Here are the specs:
  • Factory wheel size: 16”, 17”, 18”
  • Stud size: M12 x 1.5
  • Offset: 20 to 35 mm
  • Center bore: 70.5 mm 
  • Wheel tightening torque: N/A

How to measure your Ford Explorer’s bolt pattern

You can double-check the measurements above to ensure that they are accurate for your 2007 Ford Explorer. All you need is a measuring tape (or ruler!).
Choose a bolt and a wheel. Because your Explorer has five bolts, measure from one lug hole's outer border to the center of the opposing bolt. There is no bolt precisely opposite in this arrangement, so travel straight across the circle, select one of the bolts nearest to you, and measure to its center.
The diameter you're measuring out should be 4.5 inches. Adding that to the total number of bolts (5) yields the 5x4.5 bolt pattern that fits your 2007 Ford Explorer.
