23x10.5-12's would have no issues. It's the same setup we have on all our 2008 St Sports... Better come tomorrow, if you want it, it'll be gone by the PM...

Sorry, outta town tomorrow. I'll have to catch the next one if/when its available. I'd like to see/know what makes these better than a Jake drop spindle.

BTW, again nothing personal, but I have learned through experience that OEM is not always better than aftermarket..., or we wouldn't have aftermarket products.

I'll never say that. All you guys have been a tremendous help!

I know enough about this stuff to maybe keep it running. Trying to tweek and squeeze more out of what I have is where I really need your help.

I'm ready to start putting the wheels together. What size steel wheel should I order to fit tires I already have?

What I have are 23x11x10 tires/wheels, and I want to put the tires on negative offset wheels that will fit under my cart. I plan to put a Jake spindle drop, or something I can bolt on from Mike as well, but the wheels/lift must accomodate the 23x11x10's.

Just curious, have you checked to make sure that your current wheels don't have an offset. Hate to see you spend low budget money to replace what you already have. Good luck. Mike

Good question, and I have not, but the wheel came off my other toy, a Kawasaki Mule 3010, so I'm fairly certain that the wheel would not fit a 4 on 4 ezgo bolt pattern. I should check anyway, thanks!

Ok, so you guys were right, the lift kit went on pretty easy. Now I'm in the market for some decent tires/wheels. The tires I have will work, but spend all this time and not finish a job right. Got any leads on good tire/wheel deals?

Oh, almost forgot before and after photos...

Of course it went on easy - It is a Factory lift and was 50% assembled when you picked it up! Looks better in the air, now - just make sure you know the weight of the tires / wheels your shopping. For an electric cart, that's is as important as price, in my opinion...
