The Different Types Of Motorcycle Tyres

Motorcycle tyres come in all shapes and sizes depending on the bike. Some are built for speed whilst others are made to grip in slippery situations. Similarly to how car tyres come in many different types, motorcyclists will also have a range to choose from. All of them should keep you safe on the road. Here’s a brief overview of all the tyres available, to assist you in acquiring the right ones.

Off-Road Tyres

Motocross bikes need robust tyres with deep treads to grip muddy, slippery tracks – especially in the winter. Scramblers or enduro bikes also benefit from this style as well. If you own a bike that spends more time in the dirt than it does on the road, it’s important to invest in tyres that suit this terrain. However, off-road tyres often make driving on roads hazardous and fuel inefficient. So, if you’ll be using the motorcycle for both, we recommend investing in a set that enjoys the best of both worlds.

Hybrid Motorcycle Tyres

Hybrid tyres for motorbikes provide grip on the tarmac as well as the mud. Do you own a motorcycle that hits the green lanes at the weekend, whilst commuting to work in the week? Then it’s advised you opt for a hybrid set. Often referred to as ‘supermoto’ tyres, the tread is designed to pick you up in off-road situations while creating friction on road surfaces. The only negative to using this style is that it’s a jack of all trades, and master of none. If you want the best response in a specific situation, it’s best to opt for a dedicated motorcycle tyre.

High Performance

High-performance motorcycle tyres are reserved for those that crave speed. Of course, speeds that exceed the national limit should be achieved only on private land or racetracks. However, if you want to get the most out of your sports bike, then low-profile, high-performance tyres should be the set that you opt for. These tend to be the most costly, but the quality that goes into them means they last longer in high-octane situations whilst providing grip and controllable acceleration.

The Importance Of High-Quality Motorcycle Tyres

Regardless of which tyres suit your motorcycle best, it’s vital you opt for good quality rubber. These products are all that stand between you and the ground at high speeds. The thrill of riding a motorcycle is accompanied by a danger not found in cars. As a result, you should value using quality components to ensure you don’t end up with a serious injury. Budget tyres and off-brand names may seem like a cost-effective option, but when you’re upside down sliding down the road you’ll probably be wishing you spent that little bit extra for a better set of tyres.
