Default Simple math

Got a golf cart presadent, what I want is to lift the deck 8 inches. Here's my question. Or problem with math. I can add a 6 inch kit and 14 inch tires I think. But it doesn't seem like it would looks right. Not looking to make the cart taller and small tires or have the tires overwhelm the cart. Any suggestions on a balanced look.

Thank you

Thank you
This is a precedent that went through a few a changes 20in, 27in, and 30.5in tires.

Lift increased each time total lift is around 11 or 12in. Cart looked with 8in lift and 27s.

The last picture is exactly what I'm looking to achieve. What's the build? I'm not a fan or red. But that's personal thing. It matches well.

Pretty sure hes got air ride and parked it with the suspension the way down. You couldnt drive it like that, it would rub like crazy

True, but maybe a 3 inch kit with that would get me what I'm looking for. My wife is short. And small kids. I'm trying not to have to add steps for them to get in. Raising 8 inches would be perfect. Air bags are a option. But seems not cost effective for our needs

Its doesn't rub.. even at full lock. It rides on bump stops so it has no travel when all the way down. I trimmed the hell out of the body and spent hours getting it adjusted to make this possible.

This air setup cost about $600 the front lift kit is a Jake's long travel they run about $1000 the rear lift is custom fabbed 4link about 300 in materials for it. The wife growns about getting in an out but sure is quick to tell people it's her cart when they ask...lol Tires on the brown and black cart and the last pic are 27s. The first pic is 30.5s.

The black and brown cart doesn't have air and is built with off the shelf components.
A lot of side step options exists surely you can find something that wouldnt be to hard on the eyes. I'm thinking about building hidden steps. When the carts put in neutral they would come down.

I have a thread with 400 plus posts in the extreme DC Lithium tab. It's called the rescue build. Everything done to both of these carts is in there.
