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:

    • IRC VE35 Enduro Tire

      Adam in AL

      Great tire that lasts an amazingly long time

      I put over 90 hours on my VE-35 and it still had plenty of life in it. I've been running it with Tubliss and it's phenomenal. I only changed it because some of the knobs were rounded a bit, but I probably didn't need to. Incredible life for a tire that sticks so well.

    • Sedona MX887IT Intermediate/Hard Terrain Tire

      Eli in UT

      Not the best

      Good price... and not much else. Doesn't inspire confidence, seemed way more narrow than other brands of the same size. Would rather spend more money and get a better/different tire.

    • Kenda K760 Trakmaster II Front Tire

      Randy in OR

      Good and long wearing

      I have one mounted on my 2003 xr650L. it is a 300+ plus pound pig and see's about 50/50 pavement dirt by miles. The front tire has lasted over 1000 miles of use and is still over half tread depth, no torn lugs or missing lugs. It isn't the most aggressive tire for mud, or snow riding so it does get slick, but it has served me well for lots of miles.

      JAMES in MD

      Great Tublis tire.

      This is the best gummy tire I can find for my Tubless setup. Amazing traction on rocks! Thick sidewalls so I am running 4 psi.

      Dan in MT

      Excellent front tire at a super good price!

      Running this front tire on my 17 KTM 690 Enduro and my 20 KTM 350 Exc. Have over 3k miles on the front tire on the 690. Wears like iron! No issues on wet pavement. Does like to climb out of ruts tho. Running with Neutech Tubliss on both bikes. Around 12 psi on the 690 and 8-10 on the 350, Dirt and Pavement. Buying more for spares. To good of a tire and price to pass up!
