While true, it leaves you with flat spots every morning. Also poor wear on tires. These carts should have better suspension or at least an upgrade option. When I switch to Lithium I may have to add sand bags, which will cut into range. Stupid.

I have 2 TXT converted to lithium. Both carts got 20" ATV tires on stock 8" rims to improve the ride

Please correct me if I am wrong, but those aren't Icon/Advanced EV so suspension is much better. Also the non-lifted Icons/Advanced EVs are difficult to put larger on tires without modifications as they tend to rub (I tried, only one I found was discontinued). Club Car, Ezgo, Yamaha are much easier to match tires, hence I put the Loadstars on.

I like the cart and factory options, just terrible ride.

205/50/10 is the max that fit without rubbing. Lower pressure as said before. I had no problem with flat spots at 14psi and didn’t wear uneven. Wanda’s are a very rigid tire. They suck unless your cart rides on smooth pavement all day. Even then at 23 psi my friends cart wore quicker and rode like crap. I Dropped pressure and he got better ride and wear. He had his set on a club car precedent.

I'm running 55's with no rubbing. Lower pressure helps but still not as good as same tire on the Club Car. I know, have same tire on both my carts. Only thing left to do is get softer seat foam as Club Cars are very soft. I have an after market seat on my Advanced EV, still not as soft. Foam is under the seat pan too. When I go lithium, unless I trade the cart first, I'll have to rebuild seat.

I am about to put gel seat cushions under my seat covers. Ordered and waiting to see if it works. 👍

The biggest problem are the shocks and springs, at least on the lifted carts.
Has anybody found an upgraded shock/strut for these yet??

I have looked a little. The rear shocks should be relatively easy to find replacements for but I'm not sure about the struts.
