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.

    • Bridgestone Battlecross X30 Intermediate Terrain Tire

      Pasquale in VA

      Great Tire

      Great tire. Have several hours on the rear and it performs well and is predictable in varying conditions. It's meant for intermediate terrain, but it does perform well when the track is soft and loamy in the morning, prime in the late morning, and hardened up in the afternoon. The only condition I have ridden it that it did not perform well in is super dry, baked clay. But since this tire is not meant for that type of terrain, I did not expect it to do as well as it does in other terrain Tread life is great, and like I said before, the tire handles well. I did find it slightly more difficult to put on than others, but that could be because I'm not the best tire changer. Either way, letting it warm up in some sun will help soften the carcass for installation.

    • Motoz Arena Hybrid Tire

      Andrew in WA

      Trust the Motoz Arena Hybrid

      Last year I got the Motoz Arena Hybrid rear tire for my 2017 YZ250FX. I paired it up with the Tubliss and all I can say is YESSSS! I run the tire at about 6psi and chug up the rocky rooted trails of the PNW. It grabs and goes, no foolin. A buddy I ride with thought it awkward that I ran such a low pressure on the rear. He said the Motoz squats/spreads out but after he test rode my scoot he was amazed at the amount of traction he got. A season later and maybe 50+ hours on that tire and it’s still holding up tough. I’m not one to spin the tire so I get my $$$ worth. I’ll definitely buy again but want to try out the Tusk rear next. I definitely recommend this tire though.

    • Metzeler MC360 Mid-Hard Tire

      zeb in CO

      Best rear besides medium starcross ever

      Got the mc360 hard tires and am overly impressed with rear tire. One of the best rear tires I have ran besides the medium Michelin starcross. Not impressed with front tire. It was all over the place. I guess I need to adjust my weight differently and get used to the front. I wish they offered a 90/100 for the front. These are hard as a rock. Pay someone to mount these bad boys. Back tire a 120/80-19 is a 7 out of 5 stars though.
