So I recently bought a used set of enkai's with some winter tires on them as my current all seasons are almost out of tread. Made sure the lug pattern matched, and when I went to put them on I could get one lug nut on and then the others were off by about a mm, if even that. Took it to a tire shop and had them try, they tried for about an hour but couldn't get it to fit either and were not sure why the rims weren't fitting as they should. I'm a broke college student who bought them trying to save money on tires and now I almost need to make them work. Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated as I don't know what else could cause a tire to not fit other than the bolt pattern and bore size, both of which should work. I'm also using tuner lugs as the rims have a very deep lug holes.

See if bore of the wheels are too small. That would be the only reason for this to occur.

Kinda sounds like you got 5x112 instead of 5x114.3... you sure the dude you bought them from wasn't just blowing smoke to get rid of them?
So I contacted an aftermarket wheels shop near me and they said the same thing and offered to get the proper bolt pattern for me if I bring the rims in. So i'm gonna do that tomorrow and then if that is the case I will most likely just buy a spacer/adapter and get them mounted that way.
either way I will update here.

Yeah it's a shame, man, a lot of people selling used stuff (or new, for that matter) will tell you anything you want to hear to make the sale. Can't count the number of times I've seen someone saying "oh yeah bro, that'll fit, for sure for sure" when it absolutely 100% will not fit. Hopefully you can get it sorted with the wheel shop's help!

Or should I not try to make them work and just try to resell them? I don't wanna cause any issues with vibration and what not
If it was me I'd just sell them, man. Spacer pattern adapters are asking for trouble in my book. Sell 'em to someone who actually needs 5x112 pattern, get some proper-spec wheels when you can.
