Extend the Life of your Golf Cart Tires with These Helpful Tips

Here at Golf Cars of Hickory we offer an expansive selection of golf cart tires in many sizes and styles. We can help you find the best reliable tires for your golf cart. However, once your golf cart has been equipped with the tires it needs, there are several things you can do to help them last as long as possible.

  1. Drive smart – Even if your cart is meant for handling rough terrains, it’s still best to avoid powerful impacts when possible. Steering away from potholes and other hazards will extend the life of your tires.
  2. Use protectants – Use a high-quality tire shine or protectant to protect your tires from ultraviolet wear. Wipe it liberally over the sidewalls of your tires.
  3. Regularly check air pressure – Your tires can lose about 1 pound of air pressure each month. This can lower your gas mileage and cause uneven tire wear. About once a month, you’ll want to check your tire pressure before you take the cart out, as driving might heat up the tires and give you a false pressure reading.
  4. Check the tilt – The camber, or angle of tilt toward or away from your golf cart, needs regular monitoring. By looking at your tires head on, you can see if the tires are tilting slightly inward, outward, or neither. If there is a tilt, it will cause your tires to wear unevenly on either the inner (inward tilt) or outer (outward tilt) portions of the tire. If you think there is a problem, you may want to get an alignment adjustment.
