Default Tire size versus torque loss, 22 or 23 tires

I am ready to buy wheels and tires for my lifted 92 marathon 46 volt cart. It is stock except for lift and 4 guage batt cables. I ahve been looking at 22X11X10s but now thinking about 23X11X10s. I know bigger isint always better. Any real world experience on how much torque is lost with 22s versus 23s?

probably not alot of difference in the two but both will have alot of torque loss due to size

you need to look at overall diameter, just because it says 23 it is more than liekly 22.5 and the 22 are more than likely 21.8 so only have a .7 inch diff is not really gonna make that much of a diff, but you will see a loss just due to there height.

I had 22"x11"x10" Carlisle Strykers before, and now I have 23"x10"x12" Carlisle 489's and didn't notice any change.

What lift do you have. I have 4 inch lift and most Mfgs recomend 22 tires. It seems like plenty of clearance for 23s to me.
