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:
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:

Go to tire for California desert riding / racing. Tires feels a bit squirrelly on the first 20 miles but feels very planted after that. I can get 3-4 D37 races out of the tire. Great durability. A little pricey compared to the STI but I feel that the Maxxis gets a little better traction.Read All Reviews

Best in the Desert tire I have ever owned! Great knobby pattern with side knobs that don’t break off in sand/rock combination terrain. Airs down nicely to 11 #’s for perfect balance of rim protection & flotation. Invest in yourself & get this tire if you ride in the Southwest.Read All Reviews

Excellent dual sport tire for Colorado. Set performed very well when new in the decomposed granite and rock. Softer rubber to grips rock, and new sharp blocks grab through fine gravel to the hard-pack. Great on the road, but wear quickly. Got 600 miles, 90% off-road. Front is narrow and not recommended for sand or soft terrain. However, the narrow profile works will on trenched single track and ruts as the narrow profile does not want to wander out of the ruts as much as fatty tires. Handles predictably on pavement and fireroads. The stiffer sidewalls keep things sane riding roads connecting trails when consistently aired down to 8 - 10 lbs, running tublis. I'd buy them again if I could always have a fresh set on the wheels, but am trying others, including non-DOT since most riding is off-road.Read All Reviews
