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:

  • Dunlop

    • Tusk Recon Hybrid Tire

      DAN in NE

      Great Value!!

      Like a Shinko 505 just seems a little more aggressive and it's cheaper. Running it with Tubliss at 6 psi. Traction was only OK until I went down to 6 psi then it worked great! Like it more than some of the really high dollar tires. Just put it on so we'll see about tread life?

    • Kenda Bear Claw Tire

      John in ID

      Fantastic tire for the price

      I recently purchased the Kenda Bear Claw tire for my 1998 Polaris Sportsman 500. The aggressive tread design makes it perfect for Idaho mountain terrain while hunting Mulies. Took the atv on a shake-down run once the tires were mounted. Handling was superb even in low, all wheel drive. The tread really took to the loose gravel and shale without a problem. Together with the ITP Steel wheels, I feel confident these tires will do the job this hunting season. Thanks Rocky Mountain ATV!

    • Shinko 244 Series Dual Sport Universal Tire

      Shinko 244 Series Dual Sport Universal Tire

      Tyler in OK

      Only giving these 4 stars because I have not yet ridden in rain or mud, so I can only speak for using these on gravel roads and for highway use. They are noisy on the road but nothing to bad. They grip well and they do okay on loose gravel. They are a great buy for the price. I have put about 700-800 miles on them and they seem to be holding up very well.
