Home > Golf Carts & Golf Cars Blog > Golf Cart Parts: Keeping the Right Amount of Pressure in Your Tires

Golf Cart PartsEvery golf cart is comprised of many different golf cart parts, and some need more maintenance than others. When it comes to golf cart parts, one of the components you need to take special care of is the tires. This means checking the tread often and ensuring that your tires always have the right amount of pressure in them.

Standard Guidelines

If you aren’t sure what proper tire pressure is for your golf cart, this is usually indicated on the sidewall of your tires. Keep in mind that although tire pressure recommendations vary by brand and model of tire, most golf cart tires should have anywhere from 15 to 25 PSI at all times. However, if you have off-road tires on your golf cart, they might need as little as 12 to 15 PSI for additional traction.

Too Much Air vs. Not Enough Air

It’s important that the tires in your golf cart never have too much air or too little air. This is because if your golf cart’s tires are overfilled, your golf cart will not drive as easily, and the center of your tires may begin to wear prematurely. Comparatively, when your tires have too little air in them, more power is required to turn your wheels. This may cause the outer edges of your tires to wear prematurely.
