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.

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

Awesome Tire for vintage completion, better for me in the mud than the Michelin. Best value for the $. If you run these on a dual sport (don’t) they can be very squirmy on hard pack and intimidating on pavement, just keep the speed down.Read All Reviews

Grabs like glue. Single track riding in Pacific Northwest Cascade mountains. I ride slower, (Intermediate rider) and rely on grip more than momentum. Love this tire. Yes, it does wear out faster than a normal MX tire, but I think it is worth it for the increase in traction.Read All Reviews
Gavin in UT
Decent tire. It wears really slow so it lasts a long time. Traction is decent. I wouldn’t say it’s out of the park but it’s a really good all around tire. Well worth the money when talking about durability and reliabilityRead All Reviews
