Exclamation New wheels and tires donít fit. Even though same size as old wheels and tires?

Am I doing something wrong?

These new aggressive lugs sit lower on the tire and are catching the tie rods on both front wheels. Old tires and wheel were the same size but, not as aggressively made with the lugs so low. Can I save them or just return them? Spacers seem a bit silly. They should fit if they are advertised as the right size, right?

Back spacing is different. Old ones are 3Ē from the rear lip pushing them out more. New ones are 3 3/8Ē from the rear edge making them closer to the hub and pulling them into the spindle.

I ordered by vehicle. Is there a range for Club car DS?

It appears I did not received 3:4 offset wheels?

I see your point. If I had a cart with an odd offset and had to make them work, Iíd definitely do that! Seems like these wheels are the problem so Iíd rather get the right size. If I ever go to sell them Iíd rather have no stories and they could just bolt on the next cart.

Iíve got wheels and tires that same size on it now just raw aluminum and I donít want to keep up the polishing. Since Iím riding now (if it will stop raining) itís no rush. Although, itís looking like rain another week more still.

If I find a box, itís just a label away from not being my problem. Just annoyed they sent this odd offset.
