U42T bolt circle ?

    I was wondering what bolt circle is on my Mitz U42T.
    I have some atv rims on it now and I cant get an accurate measurement without taking rims off.
    I would like to get some regular steel rims back on it.

    They're 4x4.5" or 4x114mm. The issue you'll have is the hub bore, it's somewhere in the 3" range. I ordered used stock rims from Amayama.

    Where are you? - I have 8 stock rims available, but shipping could be an issue.
    I am in Saskatoon, Sask.

    what does the hub bore actually affect? I'm shopping for some aftermarket wheels and can't really make sense of hub bore, lug centric, hub centric, etc. I understand basically all aftermarket wheels are lug centric? Is that going to be a problem?

    Also, anyone have any good resources in the US/Canada for 13" wheels for these things? I'm going for a street look, not an off-road/lifted look. Found a bunch of great wheels on https://www.croooober.com/en/ but shipping is insane.

    Based on the backspacing of the original 12x3.5 steelies I have now, seems like most wheels in the 5.5" wide range with a slight positive offset should fit while lining up fairly close with the body, and only poking a little bit it at all.

    I seem to recall seeing a few arguments started over whether lug-centric was acceptable or not, but in our case it doesn't matter because (at least on the 4WD models) the hub bore is both large and hub-centric - it's something like 3-1/2" on our 12" rim because it needs to fit over the freewheeling hub, and most of the rims that I found when I last looked had smaller bores that wouldn't fit over the hub.

    I read somewhere that 13" Geo Metro rims would fit, but where I live there aren't any in the scrap yards so I haven't been able to check.

    Just to be clear, the only requirement is that a wheel I use can clear this ~2.25" center bore? I'm not sure where the 3.5" comes into play from el_supremos comment. Here is a pic of my front hub:
