Default Tire & model year Questions

Hi

Being that l will be buying a used CC Precident from an Authorized CC dealer
l might be able to select the tire size as long as l pay for it.

I will be buying a 4 seater and the spec's note the tire size 18x8.5. 8.

Is this the size l should go with? I will be using it to drive around a community and not a golf course.

Also should l upgrade the wheels at the dealer or and after market source?

And the last question l will be looking to buy a 2008.5 or newer model, so should l press to pick a later model year or are they all the same after 2008.5.

Plus what are the big differences in the model years 2009/2010 compared to the 2008.5?

It seems that the bodies will be new as well as the tires.

The price difference's can't be that much more between the years.

If l can pick up a demo l might go for it if it has the right options and price is reasonable.

Thanks

Alan

Thanks

Since you won't be lifting it I would put a set of 10" wheels on it. It really dresses it up nicley...

Erict,

Was there a particular reason why you opted not going 12" wheel?

The first thing was ride quality as it will be a harder ride. Second, there are not many choices for 12" wheels for a non lifted cart without modification on the Precedent.

Not sure Alan. If I took a guess I would say very little if nothing...

You are probably right, in my opinion they (Precedents) all look alike
except different colors.

Thanks

I just bought a 2009. One difference the dealer told me is on the 2008 and down you can use a magnet on the motor to increase speed. He said the only way to achieve this on a 2009 and up is to change the computer speed code to 4. A speed magnet on a newer car doesn't work.
