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:

I just bought this as a spare to replace the MX3 on my 350 sxf (once it is worn out). The MX3 is great so the MX33 should be at least as good.Read All Reviews

This was my first experience with shinko and it's inaugural run was in cold muddy conditions in old stripper pits, so there were plenty of wet rocks and roots on top of mud.. This thing performed incredibly well. I could put the bike wherever i wanted and it tracked. I was also very impressed with its Turning characteristics.. I've run many dunlops over the years, kenda, Michelin, and perelli.. Shinko's 546 has become my go to front after yesterday's ride !Read All Reviews

This was my first hybrid tire and it's inaugural run was in cold muddy conditions in old stripper pits, so there are plenty of wet rocks and roots.. This thing performed incredibly well. I could put the bike wherever i wanted and it hooked up. I was also very impressed with its off camber grip. I've run many dunlops over the years, kenda, Michelin, and perelli.. Shinko's 525 has become my go to rear after yesterday's ride ! We'll see how long it holds up, but I'm definitely a fan.Read All Reviews

I may have an unpopular opinion about these tires but I think they’re great. Been riding more paved than dirt lately and they’ve been holding up really well. When in the dirt they do their job as good as a dual sport tire can. True to size and 1000% better than the stock TwinDuro tires that came on my KTM.Read All Reviews
