mating a curved part to a curved part

I am trying to mate a curved neoprene grip onto a wheel assembly.

They both have the same radius for the sweep/revolve path and they both have 1 inch respective part diameters.

I expected Solidworks to allow a concentric mate and then do the final positioning with a distance mate...

If I choose the geometry shown, I do not get any mate options?

Please see pic of both parts in the assembly below...

I have tried all available mates but nothing works as expected...

Any trick would be appreciated.

*Note: I will make both features from a revolve and see if that helps...

Thank you,

Phil M.
