Default Low Profile Tires Rubbing Nonlifted

First time poster....I have a 2008 Club Car DS Electric. I just added the Rhox rims and tires below as I didn't want to lift the cart and these had the offset and looked to be the right tires for my needs. I really like the look but with the flipflop and kids on the back I get rubbing in the wheel well and some minor rubbing on the front drivers side. I really don't want to do a suspension lift and was wondering if the 1" lift blocks and shackles I see online would be an easy enough remedy...thanks for your help.


RHOX 12x7 RX210- Hot New Aluminum Wheel. This wheel is a similar look to the ITP SS 112 wheel & has a (ET-25) Offset.

215/35-12 RHOX Low Profile 4-Ply rating. No Lift Kit Required. Made for street driving or golf course use.

If you have the stock rear spring then that is your problem, put on heavy duty leaf springs on the rear and the problem will be solved, but your ride will be a bit stiffer, it's a trade off. If they are too stiff, you can remove a leaf or two, for example I have heavy duty springs on my, but I have removed the two shortest springs in the pack, mine does not rub and the ride is not as harsh.

Extra Weight of kids and rear seat - you probably need heavy duty rear leaf springs.
As for the front driver side tire rub, seems most of us have "spring sag" on the drivers side where driver side of cart has settled and is lower than passenger side. Probably due to cart always has a driver, but not always a passenger, so front/rear springs get "worn" or sag on drivers side. Can be barely noticeable when looking at cart. You may want to measure from ground and compare left/right front spring measurements from level ground. Also measure rears. Fixing rear may alleviate front tire rub? Your tire diameter should be 18"h x 8.5"w, if I did the conversion correctly. What does Rhox say the tire diameter and width should be on their wheel? There are turning stops (aftermarket) to limit the extreme turn caused rubbing issue. Sponsors should have them - just an option to check out.
