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.

    • Tusk Recon Hybrid® Tire

      Know what conditions you are riding

      The tire works good in dry stuff but wet conditions it really suffers. Almost unrideable. If you are in rocks, roots, and dry hardpack I would say 5 stars. Once you are in the mud, 1 star.

      Don’t last long

      Got these stock on my new 2020 450 xcf and after 7hrs they are over half gone! I rode med-hard pack tracks and trails here in CO and these tires don’t last long at all! Not sure where all these positive reviews are coming from. I’m not brand specific and not trying to hate in Dunlop but these tires are garbage! Excepted a longer life. These would be done in one race here in CO.

    • Kenda K774 Ibex Hybrid Tire

      craig in NH

      This tire was destroyed after 2 days of riding. Wo...

      I purchased this tire for my sons 2012 Husaberg TE250 for some trail riding in Maine. We installed the tire with a new Bridgestone heavy duty tube and ride the bike about 10 miles on local trails to test it out before going up to Maine for the weekend. First impression of the tire was that it had fantastic grip on everything so we thought it would be great for some technical and trail riding. Day 1 we rode 146 miles on mostly open easy trails with some uphill climbs and by the end of the day the tire was missing every other center knobby. Day 2 we rode 110 miles and by the end of the ride the tire was missing all center knobby and some side one had torn off too. I’m very disappointed with this tire and would not recommend it. Try the IRC VE33S Gekkota, much better tire with a lot more longevity.
