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.

    • Bridgestone Battlecross X40 Hard Terrain Tire

      Michael in KS

      Battle cross X40

      This tire is very aggressive looking and works just as well. Also, the fast delivery is greatly appreciated.

      Great tire, Great traction, Great Price. I've run this tire on my WR450, FE350 and TE 300. Wears quickly on hard rock single track but doesn't chunk.

    • Tusk Dsport® Adventure Tire

      Shaun in WV

      Tiny tire for 120 size, terrible grip, waste of mon...

      Rmatv said get a 120/90/18 for my 07 DRZ 400S, which I had no reason to doubt as I have been using 120 sized rear tires the entire time I owned my DRZ 400 (11 years) and this 120 sized Tusk D Sport is tiny and way too small for my DRZ 400S. I have a built engine, and actually ride my DRZ and I cant even turn throttle past 50% on gravel hard pack before this tire just starts spinning wildly. I have to use one gear taller just to prevent it from going crazy spinning. DRZ the 130 size tire. For me I will never buy another Tusk D Sport tire for my DRZ. I highly doubt rocky mountain will even post this review, as they only allow a few negative reviews on an item to "seem legit" then they just disregard any negative reviews.....Thats why I quit reviewing the good stuff I buy from them. If you cant post all reviews good (most of my reviews are 4-5 stars) AND bad, well I just wont bother reviewing anything..

    • Bridgestone M59 Soft Terrain Tire

      chad in MI

      Good for a medium soil.

      It’s ok. Not a bad tire. Knobs are kind of short compared to other soft/ intermediate tires. I like it for a medium soil terrain. Did not like it as much in sand. Not a good tire for mud. Felt like it did not clean out. Seem to plow into sand instead of riding on it. I think it runs a little bit narrow. Never washed.

    • Dunlop MX33 Geomax Soft/Intermediate Terrain Tire

      chad in MI

      Great tire.

      Very good tire. Have purchased a-lot of these. Good for sand. Good for firm soil. Good for mud. It’s not a mud tire but it’s still good. Great traction very predictable. Good wear. I can get over 30 hrs on them before the side lugs start to show signs of cracking. If you only ride in sand you can get even more out of them. If you are trying to use them for hard pack they will wear more quickly because that’s not what they are made for.

    • Metzeler MC360 Mid-Soft Tire

      zeb in CO

      Just DO NOT BUY the 80-100-21 front. All others, 12...

      Out of the two options of tread for dirtbike rear tires that Metzeler offers I have to say they are the best rear tire I have ever used. For the front make sure you get the 90-90-21. The 80-100-21 is thee worst front tire in any loose dirt. It is like putting your kids bicycle tire on the front of your dirtbike. The 90-90 is awesome. I prefer the mid hard front better but both mid soft and mid hard rear are the best.
