Tips on how to care for your Golf Cart Tires

  • A Golf Cart ideal tire pressure is 22 psi. (152kPa).
  • When a golf car tire has only 5psi  (35kPa) it looks the same as a tire with 22psi (152kPa). So you can’t tell by just looking at the tire if it’s low on air. You must use a tire gauge.

  • When you tire is under inflated (low on air), the golf car will go slower.  It will also be harder to steer. It will make the batteries work harder, and you will not be able to travel as far as a car that has fully inflated tires.
  • Most importantly the tire wears out faster if it’s under inflated (low on air).
  • So to get long life in your tires, keep them at 22psi.

  • The most common golf car tire size is 18 x 8.50 x 8.
  • Most golf car tires are made to run on grass like they would at a golf course.
  • These golf car tires are made with soft rubber.
  • If our customers drive on concrete, cement, or asphalt we provide them with a special D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) rated tire. This tire is made with a hard rubber and will last much longer than a regular golf car tire.
  • When you buy an 18 x 8.50 x 8 tire it always comes with a steel rim, so it’s ready to install on your golf car.
