Default 2003 Club Car, 10" wheels or 12" wheels?

Trying to decide which ones will work or not and any thing I should consider. I read that the 10" wheels are pretty normal to use and without a lift kit. I don't want a lift, just bigger rims than my 8" wheels. Then I see that some vendors on ebay say the 205/30/12 rim and wheel will fit without rubbing on a non lifted cart. Is that true? And what width and offset should I make sure I get to insure they fit properly without rubbing. I don't plan to lift the cart just pimp it out a little and speed it up. Also, will the ride suffer a lot different from a 10" wheel or a 12" wheel? All informatin is appreciated and if anyone has pics of the 12" rims on a stock non lifted club car I would really like to see them.
Thanks,

Keeping most things in proportion, the larger you go in wheel size the shorter the sidewall gets and the rougher the ride. Both wheel/tire combos should fit a stock cart without lifting.
Below are the comps:

Sidewall height
205/50-10 - 4.04"
205/30-12 - 2.42"
Diameter
205/50-10 - 18.07"
205/30-12 - 16.04"
Circumference
205/50-10 - 56.77"
205/30-12 - 52.91"
Speed Comparison at same motor RPM
205/50-10 - 20 MPH
205/30-12 - 18.64 MPH
About a 7% difference.

Hope this helps.

So anybody on the forum using the 12" wheels from the 10" wheels? Was the ride a lot harsher?
What is the diameter of the stock 8" wheels, will either of the choices make the cart top speed more or less than with the stock 8's?

Thanks for all the help guys.

I can't comment on the 12" wheel ride quality, I have 10" wheels on mine with 205/50's.
The stock 8" wheel and tire combo is about the same diameter as the 205/50-10's.
