Default 2002 Chevy Tracker, what parts would fit on it from other cars?

I am not to well versed in this issue and I figured here would be people who know. My brother hit a curb and needs to get a few new spares for his car because he only has the one but other than that his car is pulling to the right. Tomorrow he is getting it realigned and it is a 4x4 but there are a few junkyards nearby and they have a salvage trip planned but he wants to know what other cars he can pull from to replace anything needed.

On the subject of wheels - no other vehicle in a US junkyard will have the large 4 1/4" centerhole and correct pattern except a 1985 or older CJ Jeep (other then other Suzukis).

5x5.5 bolt pattern wheels: all 70's and earlier dodge, ford, international and jeep half ton's and smaller.
all similar model suzukies and trackers for most of their years.
for other parts, suzuki sidekicks and trackers have many parts shared between both the 2 door and 4 door models.
try searching for some zuki/tracker websites and forums. more than a few of them out there.

Most of the Ford and Dodge wheels have centerholes that are too small.

some, but not all from those early years. i have used them all on jeeps and scouts at one point or another. problem now is finding trucks that old to harvest them from.

Dodge changed the bolt pattern to 5 x 5.5 in the mid 1980's. In the 1970's it was 4 x 5.5

What about aftermarket wheels, i see a lot of old trucks that have the spoked "wagon wheels" from what i remember they have very large center holes, i could be wrong though

Take a piece of cardboard, mark it to use it as a stencil to match the exact lug pattern on your car and bring it with you.

Make sure to get the diameter of the center hub also on the stencil.
