Default Back wheels on club car ds stick out

Hi guys! I am new to this forum and have a couple questions?

1. I am thinking about buying a '96 club car ds and it has upgraded ss rims...
Now the cart runs well but on the back of the cart one tires sticks out further than the other do you know why? Maybe it's because it is a different body?

2. The golfcart was backed into a car and has a hole on the back left body, is that going to cost a lot to fix?

P.s. The car comes with enclosure, a/c unit, stereo, trailer, and extra tires!

thanks for all your help - anthony

The rear tires do stick out slightly farther than the front ones. That's the way CC designed it.

as for one tire sticking out further... look under cart and make sure backing into car did not break shackles or disengage springs from axle .. both tires should be equal to body of cart

pics are to small to see good

It looks like the leaf springs ( i think thats what they are called) the look bend upward does that mean anything?

The back tires do stick out further than the back ones, The side with the dent. That tire is pushed in, Does that mean it was rolled and they lied about it? and with that one tire being pushed in, does it make the other tire come out more?

yes springs arch upwards

yes one tire in and the other out means it is not centered .. i do not know what would cause that but i dought it was rolled there would be more damage

I don't really have any better pics to show. The side with the holes tire is push in and the other side is about 2 inches out, would that be an easy fix? Sorry for not having any pictures!

i would think the axle has been moved .. it could be as simple as redoing the u bolts , or as bad as replacing the axle .. you will have to look at it closely
where did photos come from ? i took them and blew them up and can see the off set
