|There is a difference b/w SPD (older system) and SPD-R - they use different cleats and shoe mounts.|

|Actually, I have DMT R3 shoes which are advertised as SPDR shoes. I could fit Wellgo SPDR cleats on it with no problem. When I tried to fit Shimano SH91 (SPD-R) cleats on, the holes on the shoes are not alligned with on the cleats which led to my question.|

|DMT R3s are SPD-R compatible only with SPD-R adapters that do not come with the shoes. SPD adapters do come with the shoes. Wellgo does not make SPD-R pedals. They make a pedal that's 'styled after' Shimano's SPD-R pedals, but they use SPD cleats.
SPD cleats use two screws that are centered on a lateral line. One manufacturer's SPD cleat does not necessarily work with another's SPD pedal. It just means that the cleat-shoe interface meets Shimano's standard.
SPD-R cleats use two screws centered on a longitudinal line. They work only with Shimano SPD-R pedals, and most shoes require adapters.
So, to use SPD-R cleats and pedals with your DMT shoes, you need an SPD-R adapter from DMT.
You should not use Shimano SPD-R cleats with your Wellgo SPD-R-like pedals.
