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.

    • Shinko MX216 Series Tire

      Rich in AZ

      Shinzo 216 Front Tire

      Overall the 216 is a good off-road tire. Grip is good. Stays fairly consistent even when it approaches the end of its life. The tread life is the only downside, the knobs break off and wear pretty quick. It is one of the best of its kind for the price. For me I spend a little more and go with the Golden Tyre. It lasts about twice as long and doesn't shed knobs.

    • Michelin Enduro Medium Terrain Tire

      Andrew in UT

      Wasn’t sure but now I’m sold

      These tires came stock on my 21 sherco. Wasn’t sure if I’d ditch them after the first ride but I’m very impressed by them.. the 140/80 rear is not as wide as you think. More like a 120 in other brands. The 90/90 front is exceptional as well. Have 13 hours/200 miles so far and they are holding up great. Expensive but they are nice tires.. performance wise they both hook up and are now my favorite overall set.. just wish the price would come down..

    • Maxxis Maxxcross EN Tire

      Derek in AZ

      Looks good, great traction, short life

      Before I wrote this review I tested 2 sets. I live in rocky Arizona with a variety of dry and wet washes. First impressions they are installation friendly and look nice. The front feels grounded in turns but not puncture resistant. I got a front flat almost every time I went out. I run tubliss with slime and still got punctured. As the hours of riding went by the front cornering knobs started to rip off. The rear however has great turning but straight line acceleration in loose soft terrain suffered but great in the harder terrain and boulders. The rear once tire started to wear traction just fell off. I didn’t realize how much till I put on a new one. It is my recommendation if you are the guy that replaces tires every race or never runs a tire down then you’ll love them. Great price too but if your hoping to get long life out of them or you like aggressive acceleration traction I wouldn’t spend the money. They may completely different in the woods or wet lands. I enjoy trying all different tires and these reminded me of the metzler 6 Day but a lot cheaper.
