Finding the right tire for your dirt bike is not difficult, what is difficult is finding the perfect tire for your type of riding. There are multiple variables that will depict which type of tire you are going to run. Are you riding only on tracks, strictly in the desert, or maybe a mix of both? These factors will have a say in which type of Bridgestone tire you will be running on your dirt bike so pay close attention.
Bridgestone Tires for MX
If you are a motocross racer who mostly rides track, a soft to medium soft tire would be something you are looking for depending on which type of tracks you ride. The type of track you are mostly going to ride may eat up a soft compound tire and you’ll be surprised at how quickly your tire knobs will wear down which is why it is good to know the type of track you ride. Is the dirt hard pack with miniscule rocks or is it light and fluffy like a sand track? Typically when you are riding on harder dirt surfaces that are similar to desert riding, like Glen Helen for instance, it would be advised to run a medium to hard compound tire to help increase your tires longevity and get the most out of your tires and vice versa for tracks with “softer” dirt. I usually ride in the desert and will hit my local tracks like LACR and Cal City MX park if I am going out with my buddies, so I run medium-hard tires on my dirt bike. These compounds handle better in these types of conditions and my tires are stronger to help increase resistance to the hard pack dirt, rocks, and other debris that will eat away at my tires.
A great Bridgestone Tire that will be suitable for this type of riding would be the Bridgestone M404 intermediate tire. These tires are derived from race teams and race technology to increase traction, durability, and keep up with the high outputs of power of the modern day race bikes. This tire is actually used by factory teams for the AMA Motocross and Supercross races, and in fact, Ryan Villopoto, Ricky Carmichael, and James Stewart used these tires to help them get that number1 plate at the end of the season. These Bridgestone tires will improve your traction, grip, and controllability of your dirt bike ultimately allowing you to push the limits even further and ride at your full potential. These tries are durable enough to use on medium-hard terrain surfaces as well as many other soil types, so it is safe to say that this dirt bike tire will definitely get the job done!
