Anyone have a setup similar to this and running and LinQ rack on their Can Am X3 XRS?? I have a 2021 and want to run a 35 spare. I just wanted to know have anyone put a tire like that on their rack?

Your title seems like your asking about a 35” tire on a 20” wheel. Might want to change it . You may get more responses.

My buddy was running 35” tensor DS on pivoting rack. No issues that I’m aware of.

Great, thanks for the info Wavwslider, think I’ve run out of portions to place a spare with the cooler etc..

I carry a 32" 10 ply fuel on a method wheel and I broke 2 LINQ clamps. I was only doing 65 and my zip tie repair held longer but kind of defeat the cool gas shock lift. This is my temporary fix.

This is a really good point, and one I had not considered; The two pivot points are LINQ clamps that may not be able to handle the weight of anything larger than stock wheels and tires. I found that there was a pretty good weight difference between 30s and 32 inch tires. Now, I'm an old guy so not as strong as I used to be, but I'm not sure I would put a 35 on the rack and have to deal with somehow strapping it down on the trail if it breaks. A 35 may "fit" but probably not a good idea.

I feel the same. Even with a stock tire I think I'll add some extra strapping just in case.

I've been thinking of going with a bed delete to also lower my cog but I feel like all I do lately is work instead of ride. I'm. 62 with screws in my back so I feel your pain.
