Yes, with most lifts you'll need a 10 inch wheel at least so that things will clear, and a different offset is also needed in most cases. 22" would look good with a 6" lift. You may have to upgrade your controller to have the low end power to turn those tires very well from takeoff, but you will gain top end speed with the larger tire diameter.

4-5 miles on a charge is very bad runtime. Those 12v batteries weren't a good setup, which is why CC only used it for a few years. Replacing the batteries would be best done with 6 8 volt golf cart batteries, the info on how to do it is here on the forum in a few places. Here's the thread on how to do it from the "Stickies"

DIY - 4 x 12v to 6 x 8V Conversion (Part 1)

Hope this helps!

Well I just ran the serial number and its a 05 precedent. I found a battery dealer a couple hours away that sells Trojan and Crown batteries. A set of the Crown 12v, CR-GC-155 is $599+tax, or I could get a set of 8v, CR-165, for the same price and do the conversion. I'm still looking around but this seems like a good price.

Also I'm a little confused why I would need to go to a larger diameter wheel with a lift kit. I can understand that the offset would keep a now larger tire from rubbing when at full turn, but what would I need to fit that would require a larger wheel?

Thanks,

Most of the time the 8" wheel will hit the new spindle on the lift that's why you increase diameter.

Not a bad price on batteries, seems to be a fairly normal number.

The larger diameter wheel is needed on some lift kits for parts of the new front suspension, such as the mounting for tie rod ends, or as Sunoco said, the spindle, to clear. Depending on the lift kit you may be able to go with an offset 8" wheel and be okay though, but most move to 10" or 12" wheels when they lift. Most tires you find that will work or that you will want to use will likely be in 10" or 12" too, plus there are some good looking wheels available in those two sizes that can totally change the appearance of a cart.

I see, thanks for the input. I'm probably going to do the batteries first, then look for a lift combo. Aluminum wheels would be nice but for what I'm gonna do I'll probably just get some black steel wheels. I was just making sure I couldn't use my old ones.
