What are motorcycle tyres?

Motorcycle tyres are the rubber outer rims of the wheels of motorbikes. Designed and built durable, they feature different construction types and tread patterns to suit different types of motorcycles and surface conditions.

Whether you ride a Harley Davidson or a sports bike, motorcycle tyres are built to ensure performance. They should combine ride comfort and steering precision with exceptional handling and traction. What’s more, they need to offer great water displacement for maximum safety when your bike is cutting through wet weather.

Raised writing on the sidewall of the motorbike tyre shows the width, height, rim size, speed rating and load rating – crucial information when looking for motorbike tyres for sale. Additionally, the roads you ride, bike you own, luggage you haul, passengers on pillion, performance you expect, and your riding style will all also dictate the type of bike tyres you buy.

Understanding motorcycle tyre tread depth requirements

When checking your motorcycle tyres, always keep the tyre tread greater than a minimum of 2mm for the greatest safety and security. The minimum depth of motorbike tyre tread is 1mm, but you’ll have greater road contact and stability if you change your tyres before they wear to such an extent.

Weight also has an impact. If you carry a pillion passenger or heavy loads with any frequency, adjust your tyre pressure by adding 3-5 PSI to compensate for the extra weight and protect your tread.

You can always use the 20p test to make sure your tyre tread is legal. Just insert a 20p piece into the tread and if the duller outside rim of the tails face of the coin is still visible, your tyres are likely below the legal limit.

What are the different types of motorcycle tyres?

There are countless types of motorbike tyres for sale on Protyre. We offer tyres for scooters, motocross, off-road, adventure, sport, sport touring, racing street, and custom. All come from the best manufacturers and are stored, sold and fitted in trusted UK motorcycle garages near you.

Looking at the design of motorcycle tyres, there are three main construction types available:

Cross-ply – Cross-ply motorcycle tyres are those that require an inner tube. Crafted from a weave of cords beneath the rubber, they are strong, thick and, thanks to the inner tube, comfortable to ride, making them common on cruisers and slower bikes.

Bias belted – Bias belt tyres are a type of cross-ply that feature extra cords within the centre of the tyre to support extra weight.

Radial – Radial tyres are those that do not require an inner tube. A newer motorbike tyre design than cross-ply, they feature a central belt that holds up the rest of the tyre. This makes them very rigid but does improve steadiness, especially under extreme cornering tilts and speeds. That means they’re the tyre of choice for sports bikes that are relied on to precisely respond to the rider.

What is the price of online bike tyres?

The motorcycle tyres for sale in our range span from £20 for cheap motorcycle tyres at the lower end of the spectrum, to over £200 for the most technologically advanced, premium tyres.

The selection at Protyre spans all budgets, brands and requirements, but before you buy it’s important to consider how and what you ride before you try to reduce your online bike tyre price.

Certain bikes call for specialised tyres, while others might not necessarily benefit from having the best-quality tyres installed. So, if in doubt, call our experts on 0333 060 4019 to learn more.
