14" wheel clearance

Talon R
So I ordered a set of wheels and tires from chaparral and that the guy swore would work just fine on the Talon. I got him home and put them on today and realize the clearance is very tight on the upper radius rod. I jacked up the rear and it definitely touches the inside rim just barely enough to shave the paint off. They are a 5+5 offset 14" with a 30" tire. I'm having a hard time figuring out why it's touching. Is it the offset? I plan to take these to Ocotillo Wells this coming weekend so I'm wondering if he gave me the wrong offset. I'm still eligible to exchange them for the next few days. Does anyone recommend a better offset? or should I just live with shaving the paint off the inside of the wheels on the upper radius arm mount? I'm new to this whole side-by-side scene so try to be nice. Haha
