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
  • Bridgestone
  • Metzeler

    • Tusk Terrabite Radial Tire

      Tusk Terrabite Radial Tire

      Beale in AZ

      Soft Side Walls

      Just purchased my second set of these, first set wore great almost 3 years. Bought my second set and had a small stick go right through the side wall. I had approximately 20 miles on them when this happened. I was hoping that Rocky MTN would warrant the tire but they said NO its a trail hazard that caused this. I thought with the new Aramid design the side walls would be tougher. Pretty disappointed to have this happen on a brand new tire.

    • Tusk Dsport Adventure Tire

      Tusk Dsport Adventure Tire

      Jason in SC

      Awesome tire for price!

      Awesome tire for the money. I put these front and rear on my DRZ400S. Replaced kenda k270's. Really good traction off road and they feel good in pavement also. I ride single track, dirt roads and pavement. They are really squirrelly at first so give them a hundred or so miles to break in. I run about 10 to 15 psi. More than that and they are squirrelly on hard pack. Great rear tire traction in soft sand. Only have a few hundred miles so far so i don't know about longevity but so far they look good.

      Tusk Recon Hybrid Tire

      Lance in ID

      Impressive tire for the price

      Wanted to try it out , and put it through its paces partially out of its element. Used it brand new in a desert race the course had a wide variety of terrain so I got a good test on where it excels and not so much. On hard pack, rocky climbs, wet slippery rocks, and damp soil the tire performs well. In the loose dry dirt, moon dust and deeper sand it struggles for traction. Over all I'm impressed with the tire especially for the price

    • Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T31 GT Front Motorcycle Tire

      Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T31 GT Front Motorcycle Tire

      Neville in MO

      Best Value, Lowest Cost per Mile

      There is no doubt that the Bridgestone T31 is the best value for money Sport touring tire on the market. When you consider that a front is good for 4,200 miles and a rear for 2,400 miles paying upwards of double for no extra mileage makes no sense. The premium brands give no more mileage. The rideability of the Bridgestone is excellent and I never feel I made a bad decision. Wet gripe maybe less but, slow down, it is the right solution.
