Wolf Pup 16FB - tire clearance issue - safety

Discovered the factory had undersized tires/rims on my Wolf Pup 16FB..they came with "Vail Sport ST 175/80 D13 1360lb at 50psi" that only allowed 55 lbs of cargo before exceeding the safety limit. They had to replace with "Trail Express
205/75 D14 1760 lb at 50 psi". The unit is now rated for 1055 lbs of cargo.
The issue is the tire clearance with the wheel wheels looks dangerously too close. See attached pics...only have 1 1/4" on side and 1 3/4" on top when unit is UNLOADED. Asking them to check design specs and have not heard back yet. Seems the springs will move enough to cause serious tire damage and damage to wheel wheel area!?!
