I have also used the Arachnid rear tire by Vee Rubber. The Can Am dealer had never heard of this tire,.
It is way better then the Kenda tire. I am just going to replace my rear tire after nearly 20,000 miles
and a lot of that in the hot desert where the road temperature is well over 100 degrees. rons64

Yes. Or as near as possible.

Some Spyder dealers refuse to install any tires that they don't sell......and there is nothing you can do about that but find a different shop to do it for you.

Exactly what "reliable information" do you need ??

I am NOT finding the tire size 225 50/15on this site, or any other site, for the rear tire on my 2014 RT
Any help would be appreciated

These findings might help and also challenge some pre-set minds.

I have a 2014 RT with 13K on the front tires. There is still lots of tread but they are cupping badly. The dealer says that is "normal". Can anyone tell me if this is normal and/or how to reduce cupping after I replace the fronts?

Cupping is caused by 3 things:

Defective tires (OEM Kenda)
Bad front end alignment....but the adjustments that often affect cupping most are NOT adjustable on a Spyder.
Low tire pressure.

Get a different brand of tires and get a laser alignment.......and you probably will be fine.

Got my new tires yesterday.
First ride was disappointing.....but I dropped the pressures a bit and now I'm happy.

Dropping the windshield a bit and some other adjustments to riding techniques helped too.
I had an alignment done previously.

general altimax on a 2011 rt. front tires are fine. the rear 215/60r15 is about 1.5 inch taller than stock. good ride good handling. but I found the rpm loss to be a deal breaker. I am good size guy and ride with trailer and wife. I need the extra rpm. I am going to a 20550r15 it is about 3/4 inch shorter than stock. A hare less top end but a hare more rpm at any given speed. for me makes the bike a little better all around
