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:

My favorite tire , I live in North West New Mexico and it works great all year. I mainly ride single track.Read All Reviews

Great tire for the price. So far it appears that tire wear is acceptable considering that some super soft 'Gummy" tires last 4-5 rides. With a tubeless setup I'm running closer to 10psi in the rear to negate squirming around since the carcass/sidewall seems to be less stiff than some of the more durable tires. So far so good, great traction.Read All Reviews

I have used the medium compound starcross 5s for years to save money. You get pretty good traction in pretty much all terrains and get above average tread life as well. I usually only have to buy 1 front tire and 2 rears per season (10-13 races per year, riding at least 4 times a month), not bad at all. These tires don't like to be underinflated though. I run the tubliss system (front and rear) and since michelins are well known to have softer sidewalls and carcasses, they love to roll under a certain tire pressure. I usually run these things at 8psi in the front and 4psi in the rear. The rear isn't too much of a problem but if you go under that pressure on the front, that bad boy is gonna roll, and you're probably gonna fall. (Keep in mind i weigh 217lbs. so psi levels may differ for you.)Read All Reviews

I wanted a good, all around set of tires to cover the most possible terrains. This did it. Handling and traction are right on point. Not sure about life yet but I expect a decent life as that has always been my experience with Dunlop.Read All Reviews

I read the reviews on the ve 35 and came away worried that I may have made a bad call buying this tire. I’m glad to say I am not disappointed the tire has large knobbies the tire compound is quite flexible the tire goes through rock like no other tire I’ve used the tall knobbies and compound make the bike feel like you spent money revalving the suspension, honestley!! There’s a lot of talk about the tire riding up out of ruts I didn’t find that to be problem what I did notice and I think a lot of reviewers may not be recognizing is the knobbie height and soft tire compound flex’s the knobs tend to roll giving an impression the tire is trying to climb out of the rut in fact the tire is doing what it is designed to do conform and grab traction. I did notice this and it was at slower speed when you can’t look far enough ahead and you tend to bounce side to side off the rut at higher speed I didn’t notice this. However the knob roll does give the impression the tire is under steering but I still could dice through the quick single track turns with ease. The only thing I found to be sketchy is the tall knobs and soft compound does give the feeling of a tire loosing traction in a corner but once I got the feel for the tire it wasn’t an issue. I gave this tire a ???????? Only because a product has to be simply amazing for me to give a 5.Read All Reviews
