Default Wheels / Tires for a 3" Lift

What does everyone think about options for this lift? It's a Jakes 3" Spindle kit. I have not installed it quite yet as I want to get wheels ordered up first. This is for a street use only cart, no off road riding so I don't want big knobby tires.

I was thinking 205/30/12's. Think this will look good? Or maybe a 215/35?

Also, I assume I want a 3 x 4 offset wheel with a standard 4 on 4 bolt? How about a 2 x 5 offset? Been looking at the combo wheel/tires kits Trademark Cart's offers. Can't get my head around all the different offsets offered on different packages.

Thanks

I think there is going to be a lot of space in the wheel wells with a 3 inch lift kits and the tires you want to use. Are you trying to make it handle better and fill up the wheel wells? Have you looked at a larger street tire for the cart with the 3 inch lift kit? I'm thinking of installing a 3 Jakes Lift kit with 22 inch tires on my cart. I'll be using 12x7 wheels with a 2-5 offset.

Yes, just looking to help fill up some of the space the lift kit will create in the wheel wells. I want 12" wheels for sure. Having a hard time finding 22" tires for a 12" wheel that are "street use". I don't want off road tires.

I've got 23" tires on 12" wheels with a 6" lift. Not a lot of room left. Are you sure you can get 22"s on a 3" lift? My old cart had a 3" lift and I think it had 20" tires on it. 22" is actually the size Jakes recommends for a 6" lift. I just squeezed the 23's in there.

20" is the max. Not to knock a sponsor but the instructions for the Jakes Spindle 3" lift is not well done. In one place it tells you to use 22" tires and another states 20". Once I measured 20" will be the correct fit.

So, now that I know I need 20" tires I can't find any for a 12" wheel that are not trail tires. I really want a street/turf tire. The search continues.

Thanks for all the advice.

Makes sense. What about a 10" wheel with 20" street tires? I didn't even pay attention to the brand of tire but the dealer that is just outside the campground we go to appears to use a lot of that combination on the carts he sells. The tires he uses appear to be more of a turf tire, though, than a street/car tire. They look good in my opinion, though.
