The wheels will swing clear of tubes because they pass the clinical part. Look at my pic. It would tip over if wheels were inwards.

Gents, thanks for your help & pics, so much simpler when I can see how they should fit, so I think as said the mount is upside down as well which is probably why they wont tilt, I'll blow it up this weekend, have another fiddle now I understand & let you know how it works out.

What a great forum

The OP's wheels are mounted too low. You will need to take the brackets off, fill the mounting holes, and redrill new ones higher up. Of course also reversing the sides the wheels are on. You will also need to move the mounting pins from above to down below.

You want a couple of centimeters of clearance between the wheels and the hull. The taller you go the more unstable the boat will be, and it might tip over on you.
