tire doesn't fit

go to advanced and find some longer studs......or by some rims with less back spacing so the wheel mounting surface contacts before the tire does

don't got the money for rims with backspacing, with my tires there is very little rub so its not necessary for any spacer or rim with backspacing. ill look around and see what i can find.
