Having a good set of tires can make or break your ride. There are a few factors to take into consideration before ordering new dirt bike tires. Firstly, the terrain. Much like ATV/UTV tires, dirt bike tires are constructed to handle different types of riding. The terrains of dirt bike tires are:
Tires can be in any of these terrains specifically, or in a range, i.e. soft-intermediate. It’s important to pick the terrain of tire that corresponds with where you are riding. If you’re riding somewhere rocky or with lots of sharp, potential trail hazards, a hard terrain tire should be the go-to. Comprised of softer, more flexible rubber, this tire will flex around the debris on the trail and decrease your chances of popping a tire. On the flip side, any loose, soft, relatively-hazard-free terrain should be navigated with a softer terrain tire. The harder rubber gives bite and traction to keep your bike from slipping. As for riding in sand or the dunes, sand paddles are going to be the best option.
Another factor worth considering is the type of dirt bike tire—radial, or bias. The difference between the two comes down to the placement of ply cords. Radial tires are constructed with ply cords extending from bead-to-bead at a 90° angle. This makes them stiffer, but provides longer tread life. Bias tires are created with ply cords extending diagonally from bead to bead at 30-60° angles. This gives the tires better flexibility, which makes them more comfortable on those rocky or rough terrains, but also less durable than their radial counterparts.
When it comes to the size of your new dirt bike tires, it’s best to stick as close to stock as possible. There isn’t much room for height and width changes on a dirt bike, and committing to a drastic change could mean rubbing and damaging of other components. So check your owner’s manual, the sidewall of your tire, or our Tire Information page before investing in some new rubber.
If you’ve taken the time to decide what type of tire you need, or just want to browse to see what’s available, don’t worry. We stock top brands like:

Really smooth great handling tire. It was mounted on my BMW r1100rt, I have used Metzeler tires on BMWs in the past and have always really liked them. We will see how long it lasts. So far so good..Read All Reviews

I run this on my yz125 and yz250 and this is one of the best tires ive ever ran, I live in Nevada desert so we got some nasty rocks, and with over 80 hours of hard desert riding and racing, these tires are still looking good with some wear. These tires even find really good traction in lose sand, and wet rocks, mud and grass!Read All Reviews

I've had these on a KLX250 and KLR650. These were fine for a lighter bike, but terrifying on the KLR. I took them on the New Mexico BDR for a week and the terrain just wasn't right for them, which was my fault as it was either highway or hard pack dirt and rock. I could feel the bike get happier in any kind of loose dirt. On the highway on a fully loaded KLR they were pretty sketchy in any kind of lean; I think the side lugs are just too small. Nothing wrong with the tire at all for what they were designed for.Read All Reviews

This is the best front tire you can run, I have about 115 hours on mine of desert riding and it's now to the point where I have to replace. This tire not only have crazy good traction for enduro type riding, but it lasts and wears super good, it has a very aggressive bite when turning and especially in lose sand or mud. I've never had a front end slide out with these.Read All Reviews
