Default Re: 26" tires on a 48 volt

I'm running 25" tires on my Marathon 48V conversion. I have a 700 amp controller, a 8HP motor and #4 welding cables. It's doing great around the neighborhood; but I haven't taken it offroading yet. I need a little more lift. It will spin a tire in the sand though. Jim

What brand tires are lighter than others? I was looking at Kenda Bear Claw 26/12/12. They look aggresive but dont look to heavy and nobby.

My guess is a stock gas cart would only see top speed on downhills. Tires that size are heavy and have a lot of rotating mass, they take alot of hoursepower to turn. Tire weight plays a huge roll in all this, there's a big difference between the different brands/kinds. I wouldn't go over 25" on any stock cart and even then I would look for the ones that weigh less.
Major good point...

IMHO 26's on gas or electric stock is a bit much. I have a buddy with a clubcar FE 290 and it struggles in a bind with 22's.

Highlifter web site has listed some different tires and their weight, this is what I used when choosing my tire, but it's more of the aggressive tread design. You'll be surprised by what you see, mudlites aren't as "lite" as you would think compaired to some others. Once you go past a certain size (i believe it's 24") the tire lugs get twice the size. The different wheel diameter plays a big roll in weight, the 12" are heavier. You can google search atv tire weigh and get bunches of info.

http://www.highlifter.com/products/tirespec.aspx There is a "view all" which brings up a big chart

Default Re: 26" tires on a 48 volt

Not to hijack anyones thread but Im having the same decision to make. I have a 2003 CC 48 Volt cart. It has a 700 Amp controller, 4Ga cables, and HD switch, and a GE Bad Boy high speed motor. Cart went from 12 mph stock to 23 mph and my Trojans are 5 years old and real tired. Im planning on a going with an 8" lift and 12" wheels but now have to decide on tires. My cart is Florida street legal now as an LSV and will be used on pavement only (hence the high speed motor). I would loike to do 26" general purpose tires which are gold couase approved, non aggressive tread (like a lawn tractor tire) but worried it will be too large. I could go down to 24 or even 23" but Im a bigger is better/nicer kind of guy. Any opinions?
