No, the 10 or 8 is the wheel diameter. With a 10 inch you get less sidewall flexing. To me the 8 inch feels kina funky. 11 is the width, 22 is the diameter of the tire.

That would probly be an Allsports kit combo. Although, I have not seen a Precedent combo. You may have to call and ask them to make you a deal. I was looking for a lift the other day for a DS and everything carts had the best deal I found.

any cart is gonna loose a bit of low end grunt with bigger tires on it. plain and simple. With an electric there a few things you can do to it to gain back your lost performance.

as far as to tires/wheels it is more a choice of what you wanna do and your budjet. personally i would stick wtih at least a 10 inch rim. 8 seems to fles too much on the sidewall. you will need to determine how aggressive of a tread(read how far are you gonna push it off road) and go from there. some are better off road while the trade off is street driveability and wear.

also keep in mind a stockish lifted cart isn't an atv. your kids, if driving, may not realise this and you will have problems....

Alltrails are a good general all around tire. If you find yourself in deep mud you may wish you had a more aggresive tread. They are great for general off road use but IMO not mud. Go with a 10" rim, 8" sidewall flex's to much. If you want the cart to do ATV type usage then you need to build it like one, which means more aggresive tread patterns which will wear with lots of street usage.

If you want cheap a set of mudbusters on 8" steel wheels will probly be the cheapest.

Im not 100 percent on this, but i think you can fit atv tires on golf cart rims. Alot of the guys with lifted carts on here seem to have atv tires. At least that is what it seems like. If you can you could just keep your rims and order tires to fit what you already have.

Most lift kits wont work with 8" rims. Not sure on yours.

I just put on the carlisle 489's with ITP SS rims, size is 23x10x12. They have a nice aggressive lug pattern but still ride great on the road too. I like these much better than the all-trails, but to each his own. Check em' out on my cart in the ezgo electric forum in "my txt" thread.
