There are many ways in which one might become afflicted with a flat tire, and equally as many ways in which one can damage a rim on their UTV. For minor pinch flats and tube punctures, you can probably limp back to basecamp with tire patches, tire plugs, and / or tire sealants. But for those instances when flat tire kits fall short, your next best bet is a Can-Am Defender spare tire and rim. Unlike patch kits and sidewall plugs, though, Can-Am Defender spare tires and wheels are large, bulky, and space-consuming. Because of this, some riders opt to strap their spare tires down horizontally atop their overhead roof racks, while others choose to roll their spare tires vertically into the cargo bed, sandwiching them between tool boxes, coolers, storage bags, and aftermarket bed rails. While both of these options are viable, there are plenty of other ways to tote a spare tire when riding. Case in point, the Can-Am Defender spare tire mounts from Everything Can-Am Offroad! Want to fix a spare tire to your vehicle’s headache rack? It can be done with one of our Can-Am Defender spare tire brackets!
