Default 14" Wheels w/ 6" Lift Kit?

I am looking at buying a 6" Jakes Spindle Lift Kit and wheel combo for my 2009 CC Precedent, but want to know if a 14" wheel (23 x 10 x 14) tire combo will rub or do I need to go with 12" wheel (23 x 10.5 x12) tire? I like the look of the 14" wheel, but dont want/need any problems. Any input is appreciated.

It doesn't matter how big your wheel is. This is a very common misconception. Both tires are 23" tall. Rim size is irrelevant.

Understood, but why does Jakes' website indicate that they only support 12" rim and not a 14" rim? Offset maybe?

If I go with a 6" Jakes Spindle Lift Kit, 14" Wheels/Tires, and HD Leaf Springs, I should be okay right?

I don't see why not. I don't have much experience with Jakes. I'm all All-Sports man. Someone with a Jakes kit should chime in, but I see no reason at all why the wheel size would make any difference at all.

I agree... its not wheel size, but tire sized. Ive had 14's on two of my carts, but I always do an A-arm lift... much better than a spindel lift in my opinion. Just as easy to install as well. I currently have 12's, but still have 23" tires. I use mine for hunting and having more rubber sure helps with the ride.

The only difference is that the 12" wheels with 23" tires will ride a bit softer than the 14" wheels due to a little taller sidewall on the tires. I'm a 14" wheel fan and have them on both of my carts, but also have the All Sports A-Arm lift on both as well. Love that lift!

I'm a fan of All-Sports A-Arm kit. Jakes spindle kit is a quality kit, but I prefer the All-Sports due to driveability. It's not a manufacturer thing, it's a spindle vs A-arm thing.

Right, but allsports has a regular a arm lift and the super sport a arm lift. It looks like the super sport uses round tube and the regular uses flat steel. At least from the pics.

Which one do you use?

We use the SuperSport on our Precedents. On our DS cars we use the factory lift kit. The only difference between the standard A arm kit and the Super Sport in the front suspension is styling. It looks a little different. Same basic design though. The rear supersport kit uses two u-bolts per side instead of one.
