Dirt Bike Tires

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:

  • Soft
  • Intermediate
  • Hard
  • Sand
  • 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:

  • Michelin
  • Dunlop

      ST1300

      2k miles on the rear Conti for the ST and I believe the side wall is to soft for the weight. Not a stable ride at Hwy speed. Good grip.

      Shinko 244 Series Dual Sport Universal Tire

      Chad in IL

      Great value and you get more than your monies worth...

      I’ve purchased almost 10 sets of these tires. I ride pure dual sport, been all over the country and these tires have not let me down yet. The life is fairly short if you ride on the road but they hook up well on road and I’ve never felt like I didn’t have traction. Off-road they can be squirrelly in the sand and deep mud. Almost have to let the air out completely. Dry conditions and light mud they are best.

      1190 perfection for me

      Love them for 1190, which I use for sport touring, and hauling butt around the west. Decent life (about 5,000 miles) and I have a heavy right wrist! Really good on dirt roads and used on some 4 wheel drive roads and works OK. I trust this tire 100%
