Default 3" or 6" lift?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of either a 3" or 6" lift? I'm not planning on taking my cart through mud holes but do want more speed and reading other posts bigger tires will do that. Would it make a difference in speed if you had bigger wheels and low pro tires or bigger tires and small 8" wheels?

6 lift you are a little more top heavy but i like the look
overall tire dimension greater than stock is supposed to result in more speed. Wheel size not a factor
pick the tire size you want and get the recommended lift for them

Epb is correct. Wheel sizes have nothing to do with it. The overall diameter of the tire is the key factor here. But keep in mind that adding taller tires also adds weight, so it doesn't always result in more speed. You must have a healthy cart that is capable of handling the extra tire.
