I waited in their customer room and it took about an hour. I did call ahead for an appointment.

They were courteous and easy to deal with.

Does he supply tires or do you have to?

The Villages golf courses can provide you a list of approved tires...most local tire shops have this list. Do not buy online until you have this list!

Buy them on line, just get the info off the tires you have now. When you get them, bring your cart to a tire place for mounting

Walmart will not sell or mount 10 inch tires. They only have a machine to do 8 inch tires.

Try Tire Choice, at Colony.

This is what we ended up doing. The quote I got was $313 for four tires. I wasn’t happy that when we got the invoice it showed the price included $56 for Road Hazard which I was told only includes plugging any tire that goes flat. I was told to you can’t opt out of the Road hazard. These same tires are available at Wal-Mart for $48 which would be at least &50- $75 cheaper but we had a borrowed tire from Kart Aid that needed to be returned before Wa-Mart would have gotten the tire.

Funny because my invoice from Tire Choice on Lagrande says we refused a $109.99 alignment. We weren’t asked but would not have done it.

Default Tire replacement

I also have 12" rims. I went to tire world by Walmart off 466. They looked at the tires and said they had no idea where to get them but suggested Amazon. I brought them up on my phone and they had the same low profile tires for $53 a piece so I ordered 4. The salesman was surprised saying they would have sold the tire for $90. They were delivered 2 days later and I called The Tire Guy Andy Robinson Mobile tire repair service. He came to the house the next day installed the 4 tires and did a great job. Price was right also. Great guy, great service. Highly recommend him. Phone number 352-434-2254.

Wal-Mart in Summerfield mounted two 10” tires for us a couples years ago. I think it depends on your rims.

I used Tire Choice.
Had a balance problem when my cart exceeded 40 mph. Took it back to shop. They explained that carts can not exceed 20 mph.
So now I drive 20 mph and no balance problems.

(They did a good and fast tire job for my cart)

Be sure to buy RADIAL tires. Slightly more expensive, but way more comfortable and quiet ride!

IMO front end alignment on golf cart is up charge for nothing done except taking tape measure, marking and measuring, 4 to 10 minutes at most. Now if you hit something and bent steering parts, or steering wheel wobbles you probably have worn tie rod ends, or worn spindle bushings which will require front end alignment check. Otherwise it waste of money IMO.
