85 CC is pre-resistor cart. They have the 5 solenoid speed control. This system can not be safely upgraded without replacement to a more modern system....
Something you may want to think about BEFORE you buy larger tires....

Right again. Think really hard about this before going to larger tires. Without a complete electrical upgrade (controller, PB-6 box, solenoid, cables, etc.) you will be disappointed with the results. We're talking some serious money here.

Why not just upgrade the tires and wheels to something a little nicer, say, 10 inch rims and tires? Low profile tires and wheels don't require a lift kit, will work well with your stock application, and save you a TON of money and effort.

Maybe a shorter lift. and a little smaller tires. That will save on the money end. I may think about a 20 inch tire. Only a little bigger than stock. Oh what Have I gotten myself into.

Why the lift in the first place, it's a 4 seater not a dune buggy.
10" and 12" wheels with low profile 18.5" tires as Xact1 mentioned are available in a zillion styles and don't require a lift.
OR
If you have an extra $2,000 you can get the lift kit, big wheels, new controller, solenoid, throttle and complete rewire.

I really have to rethink this whole thing now. CRAP. I do see your point. You are right. It is a bigger cart. with probibly stock for a 2 seater guts. OK I would like to get some lift and a bit bigger tire maybe with a type of knobby tire. Now what?

My advice would be to forget the lift kit and spend your money on a nice 10 or 12 inch low profile wheel/tire package. It will dress up your 4 seater nicely, help it ride better, and save lots of money.

Don't forget to buy from one of this site's sponsors.
