Default help with new ezgo

anyone know the best way to lower an ezgo? also i am looking at some 12" wheels with low profiles... will they fit if i lower it a bit? also i need help understanding about the offset in the wheels. been looking at the black ss 108 wheels or the renegade 12". I just got my cart and want it to look low, street, racy... let me know what are the best things to do. also how much would it cost me for a good solid white paint job.

We just put some 10's with a set of goodyear double eagles on Muaythia's cart. As long as the overall tire diameter is not very much bigger I think you will be fine. The offset is exactly like it sounds....the wheel is offset towards the outside. Most offset wheels push the wheel out 1 inch...effectively widening the cart by 2 inches. You could go even more with wheel spacers.

I haven't seen a lowering kit. (yet) I wouldn't go to low or you might run into rubbing issues...maybe an inch or 2 should be ok. With a 12 inch wheel I dont know if the tire is larger or not. I do know they make some pretty low profile tires.

I am totally clueless on lowering a car, but a paint job price would totally depend on where you get it painted. However, if you want solid white, you might consider checking into just buying new solid white front and rear body pieces. I know for a Club Car I can have one painted for $500 or I can change out the body pieces(after market) for $500. This would also give you plastic that is your paint color throughout, so it wouldn't show scratches as bad.

I bought a brand new BLACK Club Car body when I built mine. It would have cost alot more than that to paint it the way I wanted it. Definately look into the cost of a new white body before painting.

Roady, did you get your after market or OEM? Just wondering what other good body companies are out there if any.

I looked at an aftermarket body on EBAY...Total cost, shipping and all was gonna be about $500. I ended up buying an OEM body for $620 ish and some change. I don't know what the quality of the aftermarket body would have been like as far as fit and finish thats why I went OEM, I knew the quality of the OEM would have been fine.

The aftermarket bodies "looked" good but you never know. I have yet to see or hear of anyone using one yet.

I have one company I use right now, they make really nice bodies, the only thing I don't know about them is if they flex like an OEM body. You can dent in the DS bodies and usually restore their shape with a hair dryer.

$620 for an OEM body is great anyways...

the blue car here is an aftermarket body..

If you lived near me I would shoot the paint for you for $450 that includes removing the body and reinstlling it. i also would put some pearl in the clear
