Default Golf cart suspension components durability with extreme tires

I just picked up a CC gas Turf2 and I am planning on lifting it with the all sport 7.5" super sport lift and running Maxxis Mudzilla 26x9-12. I have noticed that no one really really runs a true mud tire on their cart, is it because golf cart suspension components can't handle them, handling characteristics, or just that they are a bit over kill on a golf cart? My cart is not for offroad purposes I have plenty of quads for that but I think it would be killer look for the cart.

That looks good. What size wheel?

I run 25s on the street, and finishing up some custom beadlocks now to get these 27x12x12 TSL's on the cart.

Mud tires on the street = rapid wear, noise, poor handling and will rattle, shake and vibrate everything on the cart, maybe not when brand new but when they wear, they will. Probably OK for a parade pony that gets little use but would get VERY tiring/annoying on a cart that runs daily on the road.

They are for when we take it with the jeep to go crawling. Some of the parks we go to have muddy/sandy lots and camping areas. But I'm sure I'll run them at the beach and lake as well.

I'm hunting a set ot 26 or 27" interco reptile radials for an all around tire, but I'll have to go up to a 14" wheel I think.

I have 12 wide in the rear and 9 wide up front. Message me and I'll save you some money on them.


Had to do the 9 wide fronts to steer haha. We tried my buddies 28x12R14 on there at lunch and it was hard to steer it. But stable as hell

I recently just went from the 7.5" lift with 25x10-12 tires to a 10" lift with 28x11-12 and I haven't had any suspension issues. Mine is just a campground cruiser.
