Now, the wheel shop will have to contact Forgeline Monday to get them to remake another set or I will have to go back to the drawing board and winter time is fast approaching.

I have never encountered so much trouble buying a set of aftermarket wheels before. When I looked at Tirerack, everything is 20" and limited choices of winter tires available too.
Are the wheels rubbing on the spoke or the barrel? I was just out feeling around the 20"s and there is not a lot of room in either place.
