The front and rear tires of your motorcycle are designed differently, and for good reason. Most of the braking power comes from the front tire, whereas the rear tire is shaped to provide acceleration. This is why rear motorcycle tires have a flatter profile. The flatter profile of the rear also comes into play for the bike’s lean. Since turning left and right is one of the jobs of the front tire, the rear tire is left to handle the lean of the motorcycle. The back tires also maintain the stability and carry most of the bike’s weight.
Given the importance of the rear tire to your ride, upgrading your rear tire is an economical way to improve your bike’s performance. Superior acceleration and better stability are just a couple of the benefits of replacing your rear tires. Whether a worn tire is forcing you to find a replacement or you’re making the choice for an easy and cost-effective upgrade that makes a huge difference, enjoy the new ride that comes with new rear tires.
When it comes to replacing rear tires, there are plenty of options. Popular brands include AMS, Avon, Bridgestone, Dunlop, ITP, Maxxis, Michelin, Pirelli, Shinko and many more. Aftermarket rear motorcycle tires abound, many of which offer improved technology and innovative designs for better durability and performance.
If you’re riding on road or off, a variety of tread options for your rear tires provide an optimal fit for your riding conditions. Find the right rear tires for paved roads, sand, dirt, mud or whatever surface you are riding on to ensure peak performance, better comfort and a safer ride.
