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 X30 Intermediate Terrain Tire

      STEVEN in IN

      Hooked Up

      I have ran Bridgestones for years and these tires live up to the past. The pricing is good and with the rebate the pricing becomes great.

    • Dunlop D803GP Trials Tire

      Denny in KY

      Tire

      These tires are very durable in the rocky terrain we ride. They grip well in the mud we are running very low pressure this time of year in the muddy conditions. These tires track well and seem to be wearing very well. We ride on mostly rocky creek beds and off camber slick hillsides they hook up well.

    • Kenda K760 Trakmaster II Rear Tire

      Jimmy in CA

      Grip nice

      Bought the pair .rear was a pain to get on ,front was a peice of cake. On dirt, tires are amazing. Grip like crazy and did good in mud and over rocks. Corning was fun as well. On pavement not the greatest. Feels ok under 45 mph but over that, it was a bit rough. After 40 miles, half road half dirt there was no wear. These replaced goldentyre which I never felt were worth the price. These Kenda tires were a fraction of the cost and handled better. The rear tire did kick my add to put it on .I think it was probably my fault as well, don't think it was lubes up enough.

    • Shinko R505 Hybrid Cheater Tire

      Eric in NY

      Holy crap does this tire hook!

      This tire is just plain awesome! I just really hooks up on every sort of terrain dirt,rocks,roots and even some ice. It has so much traction I had to change what gear I climb some hills to keep the front end down. I don't think I will ever buy a different tire.
