Dirt Bike Tires
Dirt bike tires are much more to a bike than a sporty look. Granted it is important to have good looking tires on your bike, but it is more important to have performance tires.
Tires are a critical essential
There is a variety of dirt bike tires and depending on the terrain that you ride and type of bike will determine the type of tire that you can choose from.
When choosing the type and style of tire there are a few things that you need to take into consideration. Remember safety and performance is your number one goals when handling your finely tuned machine!
One of the most important issues when choosing dirt bike tires is the fit of the tire and bike. The improper size can cause instability leading to an accident. Consult the owner’s manual to be certain before altering the standard tires of the bike. If you do not have the owner’s manual a dealer can assist you with choosing a new tire for your dirt bike.
Make sure to replace your dirtbike tires when they are showing wear. These precision tires are built to grip into the mud or dirt for the optimal ride. If the tires are worn or in poor condition the ride will certainly suffer. The tires allow for a better ride, ability to perform tricks and the general performance of your bike. Another thing to consider is if you run your bike on asphalt the tires will wear much quicker. Dirt bike tires are built for off road and do not perform as well on the asphalt surface.
If racing is your love keep in mind that you may want to choose a dirt bike tire with no tread. These tires are known as slicks and are made especially for speed and precision. They have no tread pattern and are generally only used for the racing arena.
