Default Dual Rear Wheels

Has anyone ever found or tried to put dually's on a golf cart? I'm trying to find smaller diameter wheels that have less then 8 lugs. Wondering if two skinny rims with wheel spacers in between would work...

You could use a set of 4.80 or 5.70 x 8" trailer tires(snowmobile/boat/watercraft).They are about the same height as stock cart-tires and the rims are about 3"-4" wide.Just have to build or buy a spacer to put between them and longer studs.

that's kinda what I'm finding out to be my only option. The longer studs is no problem. I'm curious to know if I was to buy several 2 inch wheel spacers, (like 2 or 3) for each side if that would work or if it would be to cheesy for any amount of weight...

I did find a Toyota dually rear that I could shorten but then I'm getting to far away from being a golf cart.

If you were to google Dually Cushman, and then click on images, there is an old three wheel Cushman pic, red, with a dually rear. I wonder if that's stock because it looks like it has OEM Wheels and the fenders look stock too.

It's been done...







He had a CNC shop machine the spacer that went between the wheels. He has since removed them because the cart ended up being too wide for safe use at our campground.

I gotta find a machine shop near me. I'm gonna go with skinnier tires to get more of the big rig look. I like the way this cart looks though it's cool
