Golf Cart tire pressure can vary between manufacturers and the style of each tire. Tires use between fifteen to twentyfive PSI, with the average sitting around twenty to twenty two PSI. Some like the air pressure a little lower because it makes the ride smoother and gets more traction. But with lower pressure, the sides of the tires wear out faster. So keeping your pressure a somewhere in the middle is generally best.
Be sure to check the recommended PSI from the company that manufactures the tires.
Going with overfull tires or tires with higher pressure makes the ride stiffer, but again, the middle of tires will wear out faster. Overfull tires keep the sides from making contact with the ground. It gives the cart less traction, and it can put the safety of the cart in a compromised state. Overinflating the tires can be very dangerous. Again, keeping the pressure somewhere in the middle is best.
You may notice that one of your tires is leaking, and eventually goes flat. If you can find where the leak is, and if it’s small enough, the leak can easily be plugged. Sometimes the leak can’t be found so eventually you’ll just have to replace the tire completely. When you do, be sure the tire matches the tread of the other three so that the cart remains balanced.
Make sure to check the cart tires for even wear on the tread. If you see that the middle of the tire has hardly any tread left, it means that you are overinflating your tires.
Keeping the cart tires over or underinflated will make your cart battery and motor work harder than they need to. So keeping the pressure of your tires at the correct level will be sure to keep the cart performing at its peak.
When you keep the pressure of your cart tire maintained properly, you will extend the life of your tires, and extend the life of your cart.
