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:

    • Tusk Terrabite Radial Tire

      Tusk Terrabite Radial Tire

      Francis in CA

      Outstanding desert tire, great price!!

      I've only got just over 100mi on these at the moment but so far I'm impressed. They are well made and feel very balanced on asphalt. On the hard pack desert terrain the handle well with some slight side scrub and tend to wander just a but in the corners. This will probably become less noticeable with an air pressure adjustment. In the loose sandy wash they feel pretty dirty, however it will probably feel better with a tire pressure adjustment... once I have more time with these tire I'll update this review. 10-32/15

    • Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T31 GT Front Motorcycle Tire

      Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T31 GT Front Motorcycle Tire

      Neville in MO

      Best Value, Lowest Cost per Mile

      There is no doubt that the Bridgestone T31 is the best value for money Sport touring tire on the market. When you consider that a front is good for 4,200 miles and a rear for 2,400 miles paying upwards of double for no extra mileage makes no sense. The premium brands give no more mileage. The rideability of the Bridgestone is excellent and I never feel I made a bad decision. Wet gripe maybe less but, slow down, it is the right solution.

    • Dunlop D606 Dual Sport Tire

      Dunlop D606 Dual Sport Tire

      Joseph in MI

      D606 Rear is good. Front let’s go too easy off road

      I put a matching set of D606 tires on my XR650L. First of all, I’m a dirt rider. I only ride roads to get to trails. I ride in Michigan on mostly packed black dirt or loose sand. The rear seems fine. It spins a lot on the gas but it’s predictable and drives ahead well. I pulled the front off after my first trip and tossed it in the corner. I might even give it away. On hard dirt roads in corners the front would start to slip just a bit and then let go completely. In the sandy Michigan trails it would start to slip during corner entry as you apply pressure on the bars and then let go causing front over steer and a plowing action. Not good. I put 150mi of trail and dirt road on it. I switched my front to a Shinko MX215 90/90 and it was way better on road and off road. 800 miles later after completing the Mccct trail the shinko was looking good still along with my rear d606. I recommend that combo but will never buy a front d606 again. It may be ok for the occasional dirt guys looking for a knobby to use on fire roads but I don’t recommend it. Not even for dirt roads. There are better options.

      Brad in CO

      Nice tire and sticky too!

      Super sticky tire. A bit weird in the sand but love it on the single track. Knobbies are soft so we’ll have to see how it holds up.
