Dirt Bike Tires

Looking for dirt bike tires? Rocky Mountain ATV/MC carries over 100 off-road tires for a variety of bikes and riding preferences. Use the filters on the left-hand side of the screen to narrow our selection down by terrain type, tire size, brand and price. You can also enter your motorcycle’s make, model and year at the top to specifically identify tires that will fit it.

Need additional help in finding the right tire? Check out our tips and info below. We want to make sure that you have everything you need to purchase the right tire for you.

Terrain Type

When it comes to buying dirt bike tires, the main thing you want to focus on is the terrain type you expect to ride on. Street motorcycles basically have to worry about one type of terrain: asphalt. Dirt bikes, on the other hand, are designed to traverse numerous types of terrain: rocky trails, forest paths, loamy soil, dirt roads, sand, mud, motocross tracks, slickrock and a lot more (and that’s not even counting if your bike is street legal and will also see asphalt).

There are three primary types of dirt bike tires: soft terrain, intermediate terrain and hard terrain. By choosing the one that best describes your type of riding, you can get a tire that will perform well for you.

The primary difference between these three types of tires is the tread pattern. Soft terrain tires have wider-spaced lugs. This allows the tread to penetrate soft soil, increasing the overall rubber contact but also allowing the tire to somewhat “scoop” the softer terrain. Hard terrain tires, on the other hand, must get as much rubber as possible to the terrain’s surface. For this reason, they typically have narrower-spaced lugs. As you might expect, intermediate terrain tires lie in-between.

Recommendations

So which type of tire should you choose? If you don’t already feel confident that you can match up a tire type to your type of riding, here are a few tips:

  • If you find yourself in sand, mud or looser soil, consider a soft terrain tire.
  • If you frequent the motocross track or ride trails with varying conditions, consider an intermediate terrain tire.
  • If you ride almost exclusively on packed soil or slickrock, consider a hard terrain tire.
  • If you tend to ride on a wide variety of terrain types and don’t focus on just one, consider an intermediate terrain tire.

Rubber Compound

The rubber compound is also very important. Soft rubber grips the terrain better, therefore providing superior traction. Hard rubber compounds aren’t as grippy, but they typically last a lot longer.

Specialty Tires

Of course, there are also specialty tires as well. If you ride exclusively in the sand, soft terrain tires are nice, but quality paddle tires are best. The difference is that while some sand tires (particularly paddle tires) work excellently in sand, they don’t always work well at all on other types of terrain. Soft terrain tires, on the other hand, work fine in the sand, but they also work well on other types of soft terrain as well.

Trials tires are a must for trials bikes, but they can also be used on traditional dirt bikes as well. If you ride exclusively on hard terrain, you might find that trials tires give you even better traction than standard hard terrain tires.

If your bike is street legal and you plan on riding on the road as well, make sure you pick up a set of DOT-approved tires.

Air Pressure

To make sure you get the longest life out of your tires as possible, use the correct tire pressure. Overinflated or underinflated tires will wear faster and can also be more prone to accidents. Check your owner’s manual for the correct psi.

Tire Size

Don’t forget to get the right size. Check your owner’s manual to find out the recommended tire size. All modern dirt bike tires utilize a three-number system to indicate size, such as this: 80/100x21.

  1. The first number (80) indicates the tire width, measured in millimeters.
  2. The second number (100) is the tire height from bead to centerline, expressed as the width/height aspect ratio.
  3. The third number is the rim diameter, measured in inches.

So a size of 80/100x21 is a tire designed for a 21-inch rim that is 80 mm wide and 80 mm tall (100% of the width).

Some sizes will also indicate ply construction. Radial tires include the letter R after the second number. While radial tires are common for street bikes, many dirt bike tires still use bias tires, which do not include a letter in the tire size. (If the tire size includes the letter B, that means it’s bias belted. You won’t see this ply construction on pure dirt tires, but you might see them on a few dual sport tires.)

Sometimes additional information is also included. A fourth number combined with a letter indicates the load and speed ratings. The number/letter combination is actually a code, so you’ll have to compare it to our load index and speed ratings charts.

    Babs in BC

    Good cheap tire

    Put this on rear of my XR650R dual sport. Held up well. I ride 50/50 road vs dirt. Grip well in everything except deep muck, so I just back off on those sections. Otherwise it works as well as my maxxis IT’s I run on my dedicated off road bike. Will buy again.

    Great quality at a great value!

    I rode the Northeast 24 hour challenge back in July and needed a tire that was good for those kinds of conditions and that could last me throughout a race like that, the price was very intriguing to me so I gave it a shot and absolutely loved it!

  • Bridgestone M59 Soft Terrain Tire

    Bridgestone M59 Soft Terrain Tire

    JON in CA

    I keep going back to this tire. Currently on 2015 K...

    I like trying different tires and whenever I go back to the M59, I ask myself why I bother trying other tires. I ride in hard pack to loam and this tire does great in all conditions. Lots of cornering confidence, wears really well, does nothing out of the ordinary (like breaking free unexpectedly).

    Plenty Good!

    I wasn't sure how I wanted to go when it came to selecting tires for dual sport so I went with these. As with anything no matter the cost, there are pros and cons. I have them on a 250X and seem to do a fine job for what they are. One tip, BALANCE THEM! They are 100 times better on the road. If they have a red or yellow dot on the sidewall, line it up with your bead lock and fine tune after. The only real con of them is mounting, both the front and rear seamed awfully small even with a tire machine. Comparably, they handle better on the road than the dirt. You most certainly wont be motocrossing them but will handle a fire trail or a rocky road with no complaints.
