Dirt Bike Dual Sport Tires
Look along the rim of your tire. You should be able to find a group of numbers separated by slashes and/or dashes. There are two general types of tire sizing, metric and english. A metric size will look like 100/90-19 and an english size will look like 4.00-18. Note, english sizes don't have an aspect ratio, leave that field blank.

Michelin Anakee Wild Rear TireLeeB - Colorado Best ADV tire? "On my 4th Anakee Wild rear tire, to only one front. Yes,any dual sport/adv tire is a compromise of wear vs off-road traction, on road vs off road manners, quiet vs noisy,cheep vs expensive. I do like the Wilds! Great on and off road, wear is fast for the rear(as much my fault as the tires) but wear slow on the front, can be noisy but what knobby isn’t, and I wish they were cheaper. They meet my needs( 2013 GS 1200)riding Colorado terrain, to a tee. I’ve got a set TKC80s to shoe on after this rear is shot. I’ve used them before and like the feedback and feel of the bias off road but feel more confident with radial on. Yep, all a compromise."
Shinko Dual Sport 705 Series Rear TireTomcat - MD holds up "Just rode these tires 1200+ miles down the Blue Ridge Parkway, across North Carolina, and up the Outer Banks back to Maryland. Curves, highway, and a little bit of dirt and sand and these tires were on point the whole time. Sticky in the curves, smooth and quiet on the highway, and the wear for 1200+ miles wasn't excessive or strangely patterned. Can't comment on handling in the wet because we got lucky with the weather, but excellent tire for the price and one of the few that fits the XL1200CX. I would definitely buy again. *Can't rate installation since I had a shop mount and balance."
Dual Sport Tires for Dirt Bikes
It's not an everyday occurrence but sometimes you'll see a dirt bike pass you. No not on the track or trails, but on the road.
