tire and rim swap

Old car is a 98 ford explorer [blown engine] with P235/75/R15 tires. New car is a 96 mercury villager van P215/70/R15 tires. The explorer has almost new tires while the van's tires are so so. Can we swap the rims and tires over vehicle to vehicle? Thanks for your help.

You should be able too since these are basically two Fords. I think Ford uses a 5-114, 40mm lug pattern.

For the tires, they should fit ok. There maybe a odometer difference with the little larger tire on there, but it should be ok.
