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

    • Tusk Terrabite® Radial Tire

      Tusk Terrabite® Radial Tire

      Anthony in NV

      Very weak sidewalls

      The traction is great in high desert hard pack riding. The tread wear is pretty good. Unfortunately the sidewalls are not very durable. I have had to replace two tires already due to sidewall punctures. I am careful where i drive and dont think it is driver error. I chat with a representative from RMatv about these issues and was more or less told to pound sand. When these finally wear out or I have to replace another tire I will be going with another brand. Its a shame as they look great and have great traction, they are just not durable. I would also note that I am running them at 10 psi as instructed by the vendor.

      Great tires

      Very nice meaty looking tires. My friends run them and go through places I have to use a winch. So I bought a set of my own.

      Douglas Doonz Straight Blade Rear Tire

      Shawn in AZ

      Good paddles

      Good paddles for the 900 machines. You get more torque to the ground with smaller paddles, for machines with less power. These work really good with my 900 S 4 eps.

    • Tusk Recon Hybrid™ Tire

      Tusk Recon Hybrid™ Tire

      Jason in TN

      Steep, damp woods . . . Meh

      I ride TN rocks, roots, loan and leaves. Normally run an MT16. The Recon is probably better for dry conditions. Knobs are soft but nowhere near at tall as MT16. Underwhelmed with braking and loamy leaves. 3 rides and it's coming off. We ride a lot of steep woods.
