Let’s speak about golf cart tyre tread?
There are 5 different tread options available for golf cart tyres. These 5 options are 1) knobby tyres; 2) sand tyres; 3) all terrain tyres; 4) standard street tyres & 5) smooth tyres.
Come in almost hundreds of different patterns. Most of these tires only have a slight difference in the shape of each knob. The design of the knobs is designed in order to help the golf cart perform better under certain types of terrains.
The main purpose of golf cart tyres is to get the golf cart through the sandy sections or allocations of the course. These tyres have been designed with almost paddles that maximizes traction to eliminate slipping and sliding around.
All Terrain Tyres
Are the most suitable for mild-off roading and typical golf course use. They have adequate tread to accommodate mild off-road use.
They are designed with a very mild tread. These are obviously the most popular golf cart tire as they do have enough tread to be used on the golf course along with on the road as well.
Have very limited tread or no tread at all, these are mostly used by golf course attendants that mow golf greens.
Golf cart tyre has developed a leak, now what?
We recommend that you replace the tyre. You do not necessarily have to replace all the tyres, just replacing the one tyre should be adequate for now. Many golfers will use patches and other home remedies, these tend to work over the short term, but golf tyres are generally not that expensive and just repairing it is not the answer for the long term.
