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, 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:

I started riding off road motorcycles in 1971 and I've had the opportunity to use a lot of tires over the decades. The IRC VE-33 is the best tire I have found with a combination of outstanding traction and excellent wear. I'm not a motocrosser, but I did compete in Enduros and Hare Scrambles in the 1980's and '90s and I'm still a serious off road rider. I typically run this tire with 11 lbs. PSI. Most highly recommended!!Read All Reviews

This has to be my favorite dual sport tire for riding here in the PNW in the terrain that I ride. My wife and I run these on both our bikes and they gave let us down. Great all around traction. They do require a bit to break them in.Read All Reviews

Great tire for my KTM 690 Enduro R. I've been riding the Kenda Equilibrium on my 300XCW on single track, so buying this Kenda 270 for my dual-sport was an easy decision for me. I love the tire but for the noise at highway speeds. I have about 2500 miles at about 50-50 riding and they're holding up well. I've not ridden in much mud yet, but lots of gravel, thru creeks and on more pavement than I rather ride on. Even about 150 miles of rain on pavement. No issue with traction in these conditions. But this tire sure is noisy on the pavement at anything over 45MPH. You really notice it after long stretches to the point I start weaving from side to side. Anything just off center will mitigate the noise a lot. I did buy them of off road, so I can put up with this for this set.Read All Reviews

Great Front Tire for SoCal MX tracks! Tried them all. Even I had the pleasure of getting a factory Spec MX33 Dunlop yrs ago... this is very similar and available for mere mortals. This Pirelli series is Highly recommended for legit MX racing. Very predictable lean control. Carcas on the softer side. Bottom line- I can trust it!Read All Reviews
