    The Dunlop Geomax® MX3S™ tire is the result of intense R&D testing. Building upon the achievements of its predecessors (including the popular MX31), the MX 3S is poised to continue Dunlop’s repeated success. It has already been proven over and over again in supercross and motocross. Now it’s ready to be proven by every rider.

    After years of refinement, the Geomax MX3S has been modified to the ideal condition for consumer use. What does this mean for you? Do you love to hit the trails for a weekend of fun? Do you enjoy hitting the track whenever you can? Regardless of your riding style, you’ll find that MX3S tires offer premium grip in soft-to-intermediate terrain. And here’s the best part: It comes at a price that anyone with a dirt bike can afford. (And to be quite honest, the MX 3S tire is so versatile that you might be surprised at how well it handles on hard terrain as well.)

    Much of Dunlop’s MX3S success has to do with the patented block-within-a-block technology utilized on the rear tire. This revolutionary design allows the tire to grip where other motorcycle tires merely slide, providing incredible traction around turns. Dunlop calls this Progressive Cornering Block Technology (PCBT).

    The MX3S tires also sport Dunlop’s enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS). The carcass has been refined to be more flexible and predictable. This is particularly improved with strategically placed recesses along the rear tire’s carcass. Traction is of little use if a rider can’t reliably predict how a tire will respond. That’s why the MX3S tire excels so impressively.

    Everything about the MX3S leads to better performance, from small variations in the tire’s knobs to their distribution across the tire. It grips phenomenally. It provides a strikingly reliable contact patch. And it works hand-in-hand with your suspension. Take a look at some of the impressive stats for each tire:

    REAR DUNLOP GEOMAX MX3S TECHNOLOGY:
  • Progressive Cornering Block Technology (PCBT): This is a Dunlop-patented block-within-a-block design that offers more progressive cornering action and aids in slide control.
  • Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility from recesses placed strategically along the tire carcass helps smooth ride characteristics and allows the motorcycle to follow a line more accurately.
  • Controlled-rebound Rubber Element in the Sidewall: This construction helps to damp out bounce, acting as a suspension component within the tire so that it can better follow the track surface.
  • Multiple Block Distribution: By varying the pitches and angles of the tire blocks, fewer blocks are needed in the center area, and this enhances contact feel.
  • Elimination of Tie-bar Design: Because the MX3S is intended for use in soft-to-intermediate terrain, the tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances contact feel and performance in sandy and muddy conditions.

    FRONT DUNLOP GEOMAX MX3S TECHNOLOGY:
  • New Directional Tread Pattern: This offers great traction and steering feel for a wide range of riders who have differing riding styles.
  • Enhanced Carcass Tension Control System (CTCS): Tuned carcass flexibility offers enhanced feel and steering accuracy.
  • Staggered Middle Blocks: Alternating mid-shoulder knobs in the MX3S have been angled differently and are sized differently to add side grip and promote light, responsive steering while being less prone to grabbing in ruts.
  • Elimination of Tie-bar Design: The tie bars have been eliminated to reduce the resistance toward bending within blocks. This enhances steering feel and promotes stability in muddy conditions.
  • Chiseled Shoulder Block: Derived from the Geomax MX31, this chiseled block shape penetrates the surface to enhance side grip.
  • Newly Improved Knob Placement and Angling: This reduces knob stress.

Best overall front tire!
Best working front tire I have ever used over a wide range of dirt! Side knobs have not cracked like on the 3S. A 3S is a little better in extreme mud or deep sand.

What is the difference between a 100 and a 110 rear tire?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Short answer is the 110 is wider than the 100 rear tire. The slightly longer answer is the 110 will be slightly taller because the "aspect ratio" is a percentage of the width. So for an Dunlop MX3S 110/90-19...it is 110 millimeters wide and ~99 millimeters tall (i.e. 110 X 90%). The last number is rim size (i.e. 19 inch rim instead of a 18 inch rim). Hope this helps.

do they all have the yellow lettering?
nick b on Oct 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No they do not have any colored lettering. Some people use a paint pen to color it in...but Dunlop sells yellow Dunlop stickers specifically for tires. I received some free stickers from Dunlop with a purchase but never put them on so I cant vouch for how well they stick or how durable they are.
Does the MX32 rear have a tube or is it tubeless?
Joshua H on May 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's meant to have a tube (purchased separately). There are a few rubles systems that could be used with it, but absent you having one of those systems, you will need a tube for this tire.
I know that these are directional tires, but are they supposed to be mounted in a specific orientation in relation to the valve stem and rim lock?
James B on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: James, as far as the rotation goes, the answer is "no". Just mount the tire to match the rotation arrow on the sidewall.
Also on the sidewall you'll find a painted dot, usually white or yellow. This marks the lightest section of the tire. Best to match the dot up with the rim lock. This gives a more balanced wheel. . Not super necessary with a dirt bike, but that's why that dot is there.

Is this tire for rear or front ?
Palden S. on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use the tire for my front tire. It is a great tire. Any Dunlop tires are great. That’s the only tire I will ever use
I ride a local track pretty often and also do some hill climbs and i need a new front and back i was thinking about this tire for both. Would they hold up to a kind of soft hill climb or should i go with a different tire?
Trintin B on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The MX3S are great tires for closed course tracks but do not hold up well on rocky and tree rooted trails. The MX52 or AT81 are better suited for your hill climbing but the 52 front is too hard for any track or trails in my opinion. The 81 seems to hold up very well so far in the woods. The 3S chunks the knobs off if used for trails or rocky terrains.
ttr50e , can the michelin star cross be used front and rear ?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: you can use whatever tire you want, as long as it's the same size as what you got on the bike.
Side note, on 12 2-strokes, and 250F's, you can run a 110/90-19 no problem.
What size tube does this tire use?
Samantha S on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Completely varies with the tire size your purchasing. Tubes are typically sold in a size range. Just make sure the tube ur purchasing is the same diameter and in the same size range as the tire
Is the rear tire on the geomax 3S directional as I can only find info that the front tire is but not sure about the rear?
BRIAN P on Jan 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The rear is not directional, you should not see arrows on it, but always check.
how does the compound feels? is it soft grippy for rocks or hard for sand swiping? surely its not extreme sticky, but how is it compared to hard MX52 for example?
Arik Y on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's not super soft. Hooks up and handles pretty good tho. I've switched over to the Shinko Cheater tires and have had better luck and less tire chuncking on my 450. They're cheaper too
Can I use a bib moose with this tire?
Chase W on Feb 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can use all moose inserts with these tires. Check with the bib manufacturer for proper size before purchasing
Do these come coloured (red)?
assunta s on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the tires do not come colored.
I am trying to replace a rear tire on an old Honda XL100. Current tire has the english size 3.00 X 16. what would be the replacement tire size?
Carl J on Jul 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This size converts to a 80/100x16
will a 120/80-19 tire fit on my 2016 ktm factory edition 450? tire it came with is a 110/90-19
Steve d on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you determine you have the width between the swingarm for a 10mm wider tire, then it should fit fine. Most 450's can accommodate a 120mm tire.
Is the 60/100X10 same in front and rear?
Darren on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, for that size of tire the front and rear are the same.
