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:

      Great tire

      Worked great, made a big difference in handling, just wish it had a longer tread life, but I know it's tough to get the best of both worlds.

    • Continental Twinduro TKC80 Dual Sport Rear Motorcycle Tire

      Continental Twinduro TKC80 Dual Sport Rear Motorcycle Tire

      GS1200AdventureRider in NC

      TKC 80 on a dual sport and adventure bike

      Love this tire for what it is. I use it on a KTM 500EXCF and also on BMW R1200 GSA. For both bikes sticks amazingly well on curves and wet roads for a knobby tire. Clearly not as good as and offroad non-DOT tire in mud but you can't have it both ways without some compromise. Can really eat the tread up on the larger bike if you are heavy on the throttle but can still usually get 3000-4000 miles on rear tire. Runs way quieter and easier to mount. -

    • Shinko F546 Soft-Intermediate Tire

      Shinko F546 Soft-Intermediate Tire

      Seth in KY

      Love this tire, it’s got a taller and thicker side wall than the 80, digs right in. It’s one of my go to tires for hard enduro. Highly recommend the “fatty” sized, lot more protection and the length of life it has.
