As u can see there are lips on the back of the wheel! And these spacers aren't allowing the wheel to set flush on the spacers? These were supposed to be for a maverick! Wtf is goin on?

Removing metal seems to me it would make it unbalanced! So they can just refund me , or make it right! Shouldn't have to do that crap.

I have spacers but have not noticed a problem. I guess I should check them out.

just get out your 4" angle grinder with flapper wheel, jack the rear of the car up, remove wheels, have you life partner start the maverick up and put it in gear, then you grind away untill the wheels fit correctly.

balanced tires are for street cars, do you remove chunks of mud when they are caked in your tires?

His point is he should not have to do any mods to make the parts he paid for fit his car. I agree with him. When I pay for something that is suppose to fit, then why the hell should I have to do anything except install. It's just piss poor quality control.

Like the op says you shouldn't have to fix a vendors bs f-up. It surprises me that many will fix the vendors mistake. No wonder some vendors keep selling shit because buyers will fix their shit. I prefer to let the vendor know so that future buyers have a better experience buying product.

I'm venting a bit because my aftermarket experience has not been good so far in general.

I'd just do a little grinding.
I get it but you shouldn't have to do that when you pay this kind of money for a part that is suppose to fit.

Well I got ahold of them thru email, they said to send them back with pics and explanation? Lol! Really. Like I'm lying they just need to refund my moolah! And I'll buy some that fit, or maybe that was a sign I dnt need them? Lol

There probably Commander spacers, the wheel is different on the Maverick & won't fit. Some manufacturers don't even know, I'm supplying one of my wheels to one of my local manufacturers when I get back in town so they can correct the issue.

Dune gear ! I bought them from ebay not this site, but I thought at first glance they kinda looked like factory utv spacers. Plus they weren't cheap price wise, so I thought for sure they'd be fine!

Yeah they look exactly like my UTV inc ones, but UTV inc ones fit perfectly with no modifying needed.
