C&S Custom has developed a wide tire kit for the Can-Am Spyder, offering both 360mm and 500mm-wide options.

C&S Custom announced they have delivered the world’s widest tire Can-Am Spyder and created a kit that allows enthusiasts to convert their Can-Am into a custom Spyder Hot Rod. The wide tire kit comes in two sizes of 500 and 360 rear tires.

The 500 kit features low profile tires on a 20×17 rear wheel and two 20×8 front wheels.

The 360 features an 18×14 rear and two 18×8 front. C&S Custom supplies radial street tires in the kit for increased longevity and dependability. C&S Custom offers a full line of custom wheels for Spyders.

The firm has a long and storied history of manufacturing motorcycle sub systems, swing arms and accessories for custom motorcycles and race bikes. They utilized the same manufacturing process and protocols to bring the wide tire Can-Am Spyder to market. This ensures that each component works consistently and the kit comes together flawlessly.

The kits include choice of wheels, three low profile tires, front and rear sprocket, chains and swingarm with finishes provided in chrome, custom paint, engraving or powder coating. Options include air suspension, nitrous bottle bracket, and voodoo exhaust.

“When we did our international reveal at Daytona Bike Week we were mobbed everywhere we went,” explained Charlie Michael, General Manager.

“Our kit turns the Can-Am from a mild trike into a statement-making attention grabber that is no longer overshadowed by customs on two wheels. The enhancements to the trike opens the door to the younger demographic and that is something the entire industry is interested in.”

The upgraded wheel package provides a greater contact patch with the tire and the tarmac. In addition, the rider sits slightly higher giving them a better position to be scene and to see other vehicles.

C&S Custom recommends a professional installation. Pro-consumers that have mechanical ability should budget a weekend for the conversion.
