Default Bumpy street ride, looking for new tires

Hey guys, been using my carts daily on the job. Driving around our property (16 acres) on lots of different concrete pads gets bumpy quick. Currently up to 20.5x8x10's and I like em, but I bought em before the 3" lift. Still look good and run great but like I said, pretty bumpy. Of course I run em pretty tight on air pressure so I now that a factor, I just don't want to sacrifice the available speed. Looking for suggestions on a good quality, street tread, slightly larger, soft ride tire. Asking too much? Lemme know.

I would like to hijack your thread for a question.

Did the tires work ok before the 3 inch lift. I ordered a set the same size hopeing they will work on my cart.

Jake, I'm running the tires below... their radial so you'll get the best of both worlds... they come in 10" & 12"... AWESOME tread wear on the pavement too! BTW, Excel Street Fox... is the name, google them.

The rears were fine, the fronts would rub on hard turns. The lift made it a whole lot better. Only used the front spindles so far, only took about an hour to do.

Currently looking at Kenda k546 and 547's. Different size and tread for front and rear. A lot more tread on the fronts and narrower too. Curious if anyone has tried running these.

That would make em 22x10 in the back but the closest fit for fronts is 21x7. Worried it will look weird but considering the fronts stick out a bit now maybe it's not a bad idea....

Jake, that's what's on my Green Ez-go in the signature block below!! Great tires at a great price. I run mine soft on the gravel lane at the campground and they work great! Mine are mounted on 10" rims and I love them.... Look in my photo album, you'll get a better idea of how they'll look.

So you're using the Rears (K547's) all the way around? The idea of using the smaller (K546's) for the front is growing on me because of the much deeper tread for wear.
