Wheel question
#1
Magnum 
So when they talk about rim pattern, what is ours?
Does the center of the rim need to fit snug over the axle/ center of hub?

Yes, I believe ours were designed to be centered by the hubs, and is called hub-centric. The other type that is centered by the lug bolts/nuts is called lug centric.

If you have wheels you like, but aren't centered by the hub, hub centric adapter rings are available from various suppliers.

What about the lug pattern, ex
4.5
4.75
5
5.5
I read how to measure for 5 lug rim, but our rims look to be 4.5. But I have 4.5 rims that do not fit?

If it doesn't fit it's not a 4 1/2" bolt pattern, probably 4 1/4" or 4 3/4".
