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:

      Danny in NV

      Best of the best

      Commanders are the best handling tires I've ever used in the 40 plus years of riding. I highly recommend them and will continue to use them. I only wish I had remembered to get new valves in the 45° for easyer check

      This tire did everything I asked it to do! I am just learning the dirt part of the motorcycle world and having a great time. I definitely felt the response from the Michelin tire from the old tire that was on the bike.

    • Maxxis Maxxcross Desert Intermediate Terrain Tire

      Maxxis Maxxcross Desert Intermediate Terrain Tire

      Tyson in WA

      The best all around tire

      Love this tire it has lasted several seasons with a few amateur attempts at desert racing. It worked great in every type of environment I’ve put it in, even wears well with intermediate asphalt use. Moved to Washington this year and it dosnt work as well in the wet Forrest as it did in the Utah deserts but wet roots and rocks are slippery no matter what tire your using. I’m sold on the desert it for the price and life / performance you’ll get there’s nothing better.
