if the wheels are not on the cart, and just sitting beside it you are looking at twice the height you will actually need once mounted to the cart.

Oh yeah, I realized that, but it still looks like the back of my cart drops a lot when adults sit on the rear seat. I mean I'm gonna put the wheels on and see, but I'm trying to find out what I'll have to inevitably do if it starts rubbing.

If you have a rear seat, you need HD springs, they will give you about 1-1/2 inch lift. They make a 4 leaf and also a 3 leaf if I'm not mistaken.

Not necessarily. Depends on how heavy of people you plan to have back there. My cart with 20" tires doesn't rub with just 1" longer shackles and still rides nice like stock. Tire width and wheel offset matter too.

The wheels I got said 2+5 offset. Does that help my situation?

Default Help with clearance

The closer to stock wheel offset and stock wheel and tire width will help. I'll have to read my own build thread tomorrow and get back to you. I forget my exact specs lol..,

Sean, my wheels are -20mm offset. I have 215/40-12 tires. Since you already have your wheels, I wouldn't waste much time researching. Prolly take 30 mins to install them and see how much room you have or don't have. Then you'll have a better idea of what your options are. Keep us posted...

I installed the wheels tonight and it's good when I riding alone. But I'm pretty sure it'll rub when any adults sit on the rear seat. I think the longer shackles will be the best bet for me. I don't see any issues with clearance on the front end.

Oh yeah, is it feasible that I'm getting almost 2 add'l mph with these bigger tires? That's what I'm getting from the speedometer app I've been using.
