Default Wheel Bolt Pattern

Hi, this may be a dump question but I just want to make sure....

The wheel bolt pattern of our car is 5x115 as far as I know.
My question is will those wheels marked 5x114.3 fit in?
There is only 0.7mm different or they are the same?
Thanks

There'* a lot of controversy about that. It seems that the rims will fit, however many people argue that there is a potential risk of the rim not seating properly, and thus creating the potential for damage to your car.

I really don't know, but personally I would stay with 5x115.

You expressed my feelings perfectly. Your lugnuts, when centered on your lugs (which obviously can't move) will be off-center on the countersinks in the rim for the lugnuts. Each lugnut will only be actually touching about 10-15% of the rim.

Stay with 5x115.

7mm is a massive difference in the engineering world. Bill said it, stay 115.
