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.

Conti Motion front

Purchased and installed on Kawasaki Versys 650. Replaced 009 Raven Shinko and very happy with handling. Conti on front and back now and ride comfort is better with slightly over 1,000 miles on the Contis. Shipping was very fast. Only one issue after tire installed on front using direction arrow on tire and wheel tire appears to be mounted backwards, but is correct. No wet weather to comment on as of the time of this review.

Won't work on my bike

Ordered this tube in the correct size for my V star 650 Classic. The valve stem on these tubes is too big to fit through the hole in the rim on my wheels.

I love these tires!

I have used several different brands of tires over the years and I have to say dollar for dollar these are excellent tires for your budget. When I ride alone I have a tendency to be really hard on tires, but these tires have great traction and cornering ability far exceeding the price you paid for value.
