Default Battery cables

Since my cart is stock is their any advantage to upgrade the cables to 4 ga from 6ga?
I am about to change the tires to 22" (don't know if that would have an effect on draw)

I did that upgrade and I didn't notice much of a difference... but I didn't upgrade the cables going to the motor, which I think might be bottlenecking any possible gain.

I did a 6ga to 2 and did notice a slight torque increase when carrying more ppl. It was a stock 1992 CC.

I could do 4 or 2 but can't see a reason to do it if a stock car doesn't need it.
Is there a way to test and see what improvement there will be?

hawgs is right: Motor cable runs are the longest and need the upgrade THE MOST. And #2 is overkill except in the most powerful of carts. The improvement will be more available amperage access, Cooler running, and less strain on the motor & electrical components, not something you are gonna feel from the seat of the cart like a new motor and controller...But still an important upgrade to any Electric cart.
