The Top Ten Most Popular Golf Cart Accessories & Parts for 2018

The Top 10 Most Popular Golf Cart Accessories for 2018

We run the world’s best website to outfit your golf cart with parts and accessories. After 50,000+ items purchased by our customers, here’s what the data shows people bought most often for their carts in 2017, and what is hot to buy heading into 2018 for your cart!

10. Golf Cart Mirrors

Golf cart mirrors are pretty self-explanatory! This accessory is incredibly popular with our customers since most factory carts have just one small center mounted rear-view mirror on them (which is perfect for the golf course, but not safe on the street). Adding mirrors to your golf cart allows you to command the road with increased safety while you're out riding.

Mirrors are a must have for driving your golf cart on the road or through your neighborhood (you’ll also never miss the drink-cart lady as she drives past again). Our mirror kits typically come in either a wider angle (multi-panel) center mounted rear-view setup or a side-mount (passenger and driver’s side) set, which get mounted on the roof supports.


9. Golf Cart Covers & Enclosures

Never get caught in the rain while you’re out at lunch or visiting a friend’s place again! Golf cart enclosures allow you to enjoy your cart in all types of weather. And they are so popular because they install in just a few minutes without any tools.

When purchasing golf cart enclosures (or storage covers, to be used while your cart is parked) look for high-quality enclosures that are made with heavy-duty protective vinyl doors made of strong tarpaulin with 12-gauge, marine-grade, super clear PVC windows. Buying an enclosure made of these heavier duty materials will ensure you’re not replacing it after just a few seasons.

8. Golf Cart Steering Wheels

A new custom golf cart steering wheel will make your cart feel like a new animal and is a popular choice by many of our customers! Factory steering wheels are not bad, but are typically made of material that does not feel comfortable to hold for extended periods of time and looks “cheap”.

A custom steering wheel can instantly make the commander’s seat of your cart look (and feel) like a million bucks! All of the steering wheels we sell also come with an adapter (chrome or black) for your cart to ensure fitment of your new wheel.


7. Golf Cart Rocker Panels, Kick Plates & Shock Covers

Golf cart rocker panels, kick plates, and shock covers are an inexpensive way to dress up the look of your cart and to protect the hard edges on your cart as well. Most rocker panels, kick plates and shock mount covers come in an “aluminum diamond plate” style, but we also have smooth finishes available.

  • Golf Cart Rocker Panels: Cover the sides of the “floorboard” of your golf cart. Our rocker panels are sold in sets (one for each side of your cart).
  • Golf Cart Kick Plates: Protect the body of your cart right where the heel of your boot/shoe rests on the floor board of your cart
  • Golf Cart Shock Mount Covers: Protect/dress up the front of your golf cart, covering the point where your front shocks mount to your frame/body.


6. Golf Cart Fender Flares

Golf cart fender flares are an incredibly popular addition (especially for lifted golf carts with offset wheels and bigger mud tires). These flares help keep the mud off your passengers and give your cart the off-road look you desire all at once!

There is a reason that Fender Flares are used in off-road trucking, on ATVs and Side-by-Side vehicles and in rally racing: they simply work when it comes to keeping the mud off the driver and components!


5. Golf Cart Light Kits

Whether you are looking to light up your night-time rides around the neighborhood and camp site, or you’re looking to turn your golf cart into a street legal machine – a golf cart light kit is what you need to achieve it!

Golf cart light kits typically come in either street legal or non-street legal styles. Once you select the style of golf cart light kit you need, all you have to choose is whether you would like LED type lights or Halogen type light bulbs.


4. Golf Cart Windshields

A golf cart windshield is the perfect accessory for keeping the wind, bugs and other elements off of you and your passengers while riding. We offer wind shield kits in either tinted or clear finish, depending on which style you prefer. All of the golf cart windshields we sell are impact modified so that they can withstand moderate impacts during use without cracking.


3. Golf Cart Lift Kits

Truly, golf cart lift kits are tied with #2 below (golf cart rear seat kits) when it comes to popularity! The fact of the matter is: if you want to fit bigger wheels and tires on your cart, or are looking to attack new off road terrain – you will need a golf cart lift kit to get the job done! We have a wonderful write up on the different lift kit types, heights and the tire sizes you can fit with them, so be sure to read through it before ordering your golf cart lift kit with us!


2. Golf Cart Rear Seat Kits

It’s easy to see why adding a rear seat to your golf cart would be one of the most popular accessories on the market. A rear seat kit allows you to carry extra passengers and gives your cart more utility in general (extra cargo space/cargo bed). Families and businesses alike love them!

When purchasing a golf cart rear seat kit it is important that it is high quality (marine grade vinyl that won’t fade, tubular steel or aluminum construction, etc.) and we recommend that it is always a FLIP SEAT / FLIP-FLOP SEAT -which means the seat has the ability to fold down to be used to haul heavy cargo. Stationary seats work fine, but limit what your cart can do; and since flip-flops cost the same price they are the easy choice when purchasing!


1. Golf Cart Tires and Wheels

One of the quickest and easiest bang-for-the-buck things you can do to update the look and feel of your golf cart is add a set of fresh set of wheels and tires to it!

Custom wheels and tires come in many design styles, colors and sizes. It can seem overwhelming… but we have a page to help you with that. In general golf cart tires come in diameters (height from ground to top of tire) ranging from 18" tall to 23" tall for aluminum and steel golf cart wheels sized 8" through 14".

Tire size is the most important factor (not wheel size) when determining if a particular golf cart wheel and tire combo will fit on your golf cart. All of the listings for golf cart tires and wheel and tire combos on our website specify whether or not they will fit your particular golf cart. If you still have a question, you can always just give us a call: 1-844-422-7884




While these are the top 10 most popular golf cart accessories that we sell on our site, there are thousands of accessories and parts out there to choose from! It is important that you purchase your golf cart parts from an experienced professional who will not misguide you (both costing you money and wasting your time).

We are happy to help you with any and all golf cart related questions you might have. And as always: we guarantee your satisfaction.

Happy carting!
