You can use a 20 " tall tire.

Awesome thanks! How wide? Do I need any sort of offset for the wheels or stock wheels are fine?

The standard 8x7" rim will take 20" rubber 10 inches wide.
Standard offset is 3x4. but 2x5 will also work in most cases.
You can find 20" rubber on 10 inch rims also. 10" rims is a good choice if you want to fit cable disc brakes on later.

Sorry, newbie

No worries these are typical Golf Cart tires. There are some great tire and wheel dealers in our sponsor group here > http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/site-sponsors.php

Good deal, thanks a ton. Oh...if I want to do a lift for the Melex I'll need to have some blocks fabricated correct? They don't make a kit for it?

For a lift you are on your own save for any members here who may have tackled that task previously.
