Smile Tire Treads

Got my cart ordered, now starting to think about which tread to go with when I upgrade to 12" wheels 22" tires and lift kit. My riding will be mostly on pavement, but on occasion will ride around property. I would like a smooth ride on the pavemnt but something a little bit more aggressive than the smoother tread like most of the stock tires are. Also, is a spindle lift or double A arm lift better?
Thanks for any input as always!

If I could do it all over, I would go for the double A-Arm. Also, don't rule out 14" wheels with 23x14 tires w/ 6" lift. That combo is getting popular and looks great!

Yea I was kinda leaning toward the A-Arm also...I don't know a thing about them, but they looked a little more stable. I had picked the 12" so I would not loose as much torque. For now I've got to make do with the stock controller and solonoid, but I bet they would look awesome!

The wheel size will not affect torque. The overall tire height will. With that said, 22 vs. 23" will not make a big difference. Having more sidewall 12 vs. 14 will make your motor work harder. Just some stuff to consider..

However 12" wheels with 22" tires looks and functions great, just the same.

LURCH..I like those! They ride pretty smooth? Haven't seen them, where did you get them? Seems like everyone is carrying the Mojave, which I like the looks of too but for what I'm going to use them for they may be a little too aggressive a tread.

They ride great but they are 6 ply and DOT rated so they are a little stiff. I got them from middle Tn. off of e-bay just put in Vision VX's, mine are 23X10.5X12's
