Dual sport tires run the full gamut from street legal knobby tires for dirt bikes to trail capable street tires for big ADV bikes and everything inbetween. Brands like Bridgestone, Metzeler, Pirelli, Heidenau, Mitas, Avon and Continental allow you to tailor your tire to the percentage of time spent on road vs off road. Tread patterns and compounds will maximize traction on whatever surface you ride most, giving you the ability to get the most out of your tires. DOT ratings are standard and sizes range from 17” wheel applications for street bikes to the standard 21” and 18 or 19” wheels found on dual-sport and motocross bikes. If you find yourself spending time on the pavement, putting a set of dual sport tires on your bike will both increase the life of your tires and keep you safe and legal.
