Default Wheel Offset for New Lift Kit

Hello all,

I tried to do a search but couldn't really find what I was looking for.

I have a 2001 Club Car DS Electric.

I just purchased an All Sport 4" A-arm lift kit, and it says "requires offset wheels" with no further information.

The current wheels I have are 18x8.5-8 (I believe original) but I could not find an ET number on the back.

I am looking to purchase 22x10-10 wheels and tires. Possibly 22x11-10 max.

Looking for some information to find out what offset I will need for both of my options so that the tires will not rub.

Any help would be great.

Thanks!

Corey

Offset is created by the rim itself, and isn't one of those standard numbers in a tire spec (ie 18x8.5-8 ). You'll need to find rims with stated + or - offsets. The other option, assuming you need a -negative offset (make wider stance) is to use wheel spacers.

Thank you for your response. Yes, I know all that you mentioned.

More specifically, my question is how do I figure out what offset I will need?

Once you install the lift kit, the stock 18" wheels should fit just fine, it will look goofy, but functional. At that point you could measure the clearance to the fenders/body/any thing else that might rub. Then knowing the radius of the new wheels you'll have an idea if it will rub.
The rims you are looking to buy, do they have various offset options or will you use spacers?

Ya, that's a good idea. I was looking at some 22x10-10, 22x10-12, and 22x10-14 wheels and tires and they all said +1" offset. That seems kinda weird?

I might just have to do like you said, check the rims and my 18" tires after I install the lift kit to see what will work.
