Default Yamaha Tire size

This is my first cart and first build. Its a 1996 Yamaha g14. I have 4 more weekends at the campground before bringing it home for the extreme makeover. Everyone else at the campground likes lifting their carts, but its all paved or gravel roads or mowed grass so I'm planning on leaving mine stock height.
Heres the question can I get 14 wheels in the rear and 12 inchers in the front without lifting? If yes, what tire sizes do I need to run? I am planning on a rear seat so I will be putting heavy duty springs in the rear.
With so many tire and wheel combos I'm just not sure where to start.
I have also looked at some pics of the "on road carts" from diff memebers on here and all I can say is !WOW! The things you guys do with your carts is cool as h#ll. Hope no one gets offended if I borrow a few ideas.
Thanks for any and all opinions and inputs.

14's in the back would need some really lowprofile tires, there just isn't enough room with the stock frame member. The rear seat would even cause more "rubbing". But if there is a "will, there is a way"

Default Re: Yamaha Tire size

thanks for the advice smallblock. I have read a few threads on here about how rough low pro tires ride and I (well the wife/boss) really don't want that.
My overall plan is to have a cool stance to the cart, without going with a full blown 6 inch lift. I have looked at some of your builds and they are cool. So if you don't mind me asking, what would you suggest? I am not above a small lift in the rear or 12 inch wheels in rear and 10 inchers in the front. Being a newbie Im just not sure where to start.
Thank you for any help and wisdom
