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, before investing in some new rubber.

I stalled these tires on my Ktm 500 I dual sport. Don’t run much road but always run roads to get to trails. The front tire feels a bit slippery on terrain that other tires usually feel more stable on it does however wear like iron. I have 1500 miles and it still shows the little squares in the knobs and hasn’t worn abnorormal yet. Can’t beat it. The rear tire however is very very sticky on just about everything. However I made a 4 day trip to Hatfield McCoy and it would not hook on the hard packed clay at all. And not to mention every center knob has now ripped off. Not knocking it to bad but the tread isn’t not intended to last more than a few solid rides. Do not run the rear down the roads it’ll kill it and it felt rather loose in turns. Overall I’d try another one if I ran less road and I’d the tread compound didn’t tear off.Read All Reviews
