Looks like they are for a car. Do they offer the lug pattern for your buggie?
Are you electric or gas? It's gonna take some power to turn those over and stop the buggie as well...

I'd make sure you have enough rear offset. Those wheels have the whole offset to the rear of the wheel! They are for a front drive car.

I agree, those positive offsets are usually for front wheel drive cars.
I have not installed new wheels yet, so I don't know much about proper offset for each lift and cart models.
I have however done some research as the whole offset data on wheels can be confusing because of different ways they are expressed.
Rear spacing (or backspacing) is the distance between the wheel's inboard edge and its mounting pad/surface.
You will see 7 inch rims defined as 3+4 or 2+5. The first number is the rear Spacing, but often they use the word offset to describe it.
Offset is the distance from the wheel center to its mounting pad/surface.
To find offset, plug the Rear spacing and width into this formula:
Offset = Rear Spacing — Total Wheel Width / 2
Offset is expressed as an ET number, ET38 and the 'ET' is short for the German word 'Einpresstiefe' which means 'insertion depth'.
The number is the distance in millimeters between the center line and the mounting pad/surface.
The wheel in your link has ET38, so it is a positive offset, to convert into the format used in most US golf sites:
Rear Spacing = Offset + Total Wheel Width / 2
Rear Spacing = 38mm + (6.5in*25.4mm)/2
Rear Spacing = 4.75in (ie 4.75+1.75)
