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:

This 4.60 x 18 is a very skinny tire. I got it for my KTM 450 EXC and it really looked more like a 4.00 tire, something more for a 250cc dual sport. I think the 5.10 would be a much better fit. The knobs on the very edges are very soft and squishy, and on pavement that makes it a very scary tire in corners. I feel more comfortable with a Dunlop 606 in cornering! Or even a full knobby. I ended up getting a Sinko 244 5.10 x 18. Much better size for my bike and the side knobs are "normal" so it handles very well on road. I would not recommend this tire to anyone.Read All Reviews

Not a big fan of this tire. The offset knobby just doesn't seem to grip just right fro me.Read All Reviews

Slapped this tire on my 04 RM250 to do some ky single track. Coming from a MX3S this tire really doesn't have anywhere near the straight line traction with the recommended psi. 4 rides it's pretty chewed up. Probably going back to a M5B or another digger as this tire leaves a lot to be desired for the money.Read All Reviews

This tire rocks for a DRZ, great traction and control on Colorado and Utah trips. Wore a little faster than expected but I still got 2 years out of it. Could possibly last another year but I am replacing with the destroyed rear. Night and day difference when compared to trailwing.Read All Reviews
