Tire Buyers Guide

On a motorcycle, every critical element of control is dependent on two things: Your motorcycle tires. Specifically, the two contact patches that engage whatever surface you are riding on. These two contact patches provide the traction necessary for acceleration, deceleration and changes in direction. We understand this is stating something very obvious to most riders, but the fact remains that most of us tend to take tires for granted. On that note, this tire guide is intended to help you understand a little more about tire maintenance, construction and most importantly, proper tire selection.

Motorcycle Superstore is your two-wheel destination for all things motorcycle tires. Here you'll find a wide assortment from street to dirt. One of the most overlooked components of the bike, your tires play a significant role in handling and stability. If your tread is low or your rubber resembles a drag slick, then it is probably time to replace and upgrade. There are many different tires on the market, and finding the right one for your riding style and bike can be difficult. Below are a few guidelines to help you shop for the perfect set of motorcycle tires.

Sportbike Tires- Sportbike tires are made for aggressive riders who have the need for speed. Designed to work for both street and track days, these tires can get low and go fast, all while providing excellent grip and feel.

Sport Touring- These tires are perfect for riders who spend most of their time on the back roads and old highways. With great traction in both wet and dry conditions, sport touring tires are extremely versatile.

Adventure Touring Tires- For the adventurous type, these tires will help take you any where on the map. Touring tires work great on the street, and can hold their own on fire roads and light off-roading. With more of a knobby style side tread, these tires will hook up well in the dirt or gravel, but provide a smooth ride on smoother surfaces.

Dual Sport Tires- If your riding takes you off the road more than on the road, dual sport tires are perfect for you. With full-fledged knobbies, these will take you up any mountain or trail and get you back on the road and headed home.

Motocross Tires- Ready for the track or trail, dirt bike and motocross tires are perfect for the all off-road rider. Whether you are into nasty single track, or into airing tables, a fresh motocross tire will dig in and hook up.

As you may know, motorcycle tires come in many different styles and brands. Dunlop, Bridgestone, Pirelli, Metzeler, and Michelin offer a large variety of tires to fit every type of rider. If you ride in wet and cold conditions, or ride in the sand, you'll find fine-tuned models right here. Be sure to use our tire finder to see what fits your exact bike. And always feel free to give our friendly tire experts a call.

co2 cartridge

These things are a life saver! Bailed me out with my first flat ever out in no mans land. 2 cartridges got my tire up to 40 psi to get me home! Pricey, but worth it.

Nice compact repair kit

I have not used it yet (and I hope I never have to) but from what I see in the bag it would cover most problems! It's a good size bag!

Great tire for the price.

Bought this tire for my dads bike before Sturgis as he needed a rear tire. He had nothing but good things to say about it. Cant say too much about the tread life but it stood up to our 2000 mile trip without any issues.

Very difficult to ride through twisties

I've installed these tires, both front and rear on an '03 GSX-R 750, replacing Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 tires and these Contis are very difficult to ride through twisties. The front tire feels as if it's going to give out on steeper lean angles (far from knee-dragging angles). The bike constantly feels as if it will wander wide off of its line as compared to the Battlax. The rear tire is not as bad with precision control, but lacks stability. For example, the slightest amount of gravel or pebbles on a turn will make you feel as if the rear end is going to shoot out from under you, whereas the Battlax would simply communicate the gravel to you while still maintaining a confident grip. Finally, these tires take quite a while to warm up. I highly caution against using these tires for twisties riding. They are perhaps best suited for distance touring on dry pavement.

m3 rear

Excellent tire, bought a rear and it was hard to turn in for first 20 miles then after that, it tipped in like butter. Paired with a Michelin. Power 1 2ct front and it is an excellent combo for aggressive riding on a Cbr600rr.
