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.

Secure feeling

I bought this kit prior to a 2000+ mile trip. I didn't have to use it, but it was nice to know it was there if necessary. Also bought an electric air pump and first aid kit. I'm thankful I didn't have to use any of this stuff, but the secure feeling having it helped remove some of the concerns about travelling to remote locations. If I ever do have to use this kit, I may update this review. Here's hoping I don't have to!!

Great set of tires and great deal

If I had to find a negative I guess it would be tread life. However, these tires are a good deal and with free shipping, its easy to afford another set. I got about 2,000 miles on them and wore out the front and center rear from backing it in and commuting. Mostly commuting ;) For a street bike they are great. In the wet on the coast, the only time I had loss of traction was when I would get hard on throttle on corner exit. Predictable slide and easy to control.

Shinko 230 Rear Tire

I've only put 500 miles on the Shinko rear tire so far but it is working well. Got caught in the rain once and was pleased with the wet traction. Tire was mounted with the paint mark opposite the valve stem and required no balance weights. Straight line high speed tracking is good. This tire gives excellent performance for the money. I will try a Shinko on the front when my Battlax wears out.

Security knowing it will stick to the Road!

Kawasaki Concours 14ABS, I'm a year round commuter in NJ. I wore the last Pilot 3 out in 13,000 miles. This by far sticks to the road in all rain and heavy down pours. I've been stuck riding back from work in the snow, light to heavy slush. White knuckles all the way 40 miles. The tires held the road. I don't think I'll ever buy another type of tire, besides the new pilot 4. They always come out with the cherry flavor after I purchase the reg stuff!

Bridgestone 020

Bought the front and rear tire for a Honda st1300 (2010). The factory tires had 8,000 miles on them and they were worn out. Drive the bike on interstate highways to work. Bike handles excellent with these tires at 70/75 mph. Motorcycle Superstore has best prices and shipping is extremely fast. Great deal all around. Respectfully, Don S.
