Gravel Tire Finder


Find your gravel tires today

This list of gravel tires below is meant to be a reference guide of gravel tires that you could use for your mixed surface adventures. It will include tires that may fall under a different category of cycling (cyclocross or, in some cases, mountain bike), as well as those that are designed, tested, and produced specifically for mixed surfaces such as gravel riding and racing.

Riding Gravel realizes that ANY tire could be used on gravel/dirt roads. This list reflects those tires that are either marketed/designed/universally known as “gravel” specific designs, or have a suggested use in that category by the manufacturer.

If you know of a tire that you think should be added to this page, please contact us.

    Very interested in which tires can be run tubeless.

    • RG January 5, 2015 at 12:56 am #

      I think a lot of people are Doug. Good suggestion. Thanks

    Has anyone published hard data on decreased rolling resistance on tubeless with sealant vs tubed or latex tubed tires? For all the trouble they can be there should be hard data to show the techniques worth.

  3. Guitar Ted January 5, 2015 at 7:19 am #

    Tubeless: This ground has been run over before with regard to 26 and 29 inch mountain bike tires and now with fat bike tires and mixed surface tires. Here’s what you are up against, as far as determining any data worth relying on-

    When a “system” does not exist for a certain type of tire, and when a construction technique for manufacturing tires is not taking tubeless use into consideration, you have a situation where there are so many variables that cannot be controlled that saying “X” tire is good for tubeless and “performs in a certain manner” is not reliable information. To wit: Clement MSO 40mm tires have a very mixed reputation as a tubeless tire. Some riders report fantastic results, some riders have weeping issues, some riders have the tires fail due to blow offs and/or casing delamination issues. Construction technique, rim choices, and sealant compositions all play into this.

    Riding Gravel would love to provide all of you with a set of tires and rims that “work tubeless”, however; as with the previous examples of fat bike tires, 29″er tires, and 26″er tires before that, until there are industry standard systems in place, it is beyond the scope of us here to figure out the literally thousands of combinations for a tubeless set up.

    We may give a tire a “reputation” comment, but do not look for us to say definitively that any non-tubeless tire on any rim is “good/better/best” than any other offerings used tubeless. There are reasons no one publishes this sort of data “officially”, and we are quite aware of them.

    There will be tubeless system tires soon. Bontrager, WTB, and others are working on/already have components in place, but this tubeless tires for mixed surface use is in its infancy and will be a very quick to change landscape in the coming years. If mixed surface riding catches the manufacturers attention due to potential sales numbers, this will happen sooner than later.

    We will do our best to stay on top of this moving beast. Thanks for all the interest so far!

    I for one am really looking forward to the tire finder promised on this page. No other part of my bike elicits so much angst over making the right choice.

    One thing that would be really nice is a way to place a given tire on the spectrum from 100% smooth road to 100% dirt.

    Almost everything of interest here falls in between, but some are closer to one end or the other. For example, I ride about 50% pavement and hard packed dirt for the rest, so I am usually looking at tires like Paselas or the Compass line. Others seem to be looking for almost MTB tires like the WTB Nano, which is much too slow for me.

    A rating on this scale would be a lot more useful to me than a tubeless rating.

    • RG January 27, 2015 at 2:11 pm #

      Again, thanks AddisonRamblr. Very much appreciated. I would tend to agree with you on the rating. Tubeless, while it may be helpful, isn’t really the most useful rating, especially as it becomes more standard.

  5. Rich S November 20, 2015 at 9:39 am #

    Awesome and thanks for putting this all together! I’ll be in the market for tubeless very soon and this will be a helpful reference list.

    FWIW, VeeTire has a few models such as the Rail or XCX that look like they would feel right at home here.

    • RG November 20, 2015 at 10:53 pm #

      For sure Rich. We work hard to provide all of you with some information and resources. Thanks for following along.

  6. Barney November 26, 2015 at 7:35 am #

    I’m riding a Redline cross with a 2 x 8 what should I run for gears or gravel.

  7. Blake November 28, 2015 at 1:39 pm #

    Awesome compilation GT, thanks à lot.

    Would love to see more WTB tires please 🙂

  8. Ronnie Bryant December 17, 2015 at 1:36 pm #

    Compass Rat Trap Pass 26″ are tubeless compatible.

    • RGBen December 19, 2015 at 2:56 am #

      Ronnie,
      Updated. Thanks

  9. Douglas May 22, 2016 at 12:35 pm #

    I enjoyed using the Schwalbe Marathon Mondial in a 47x700c size.

    It’s a Kevlar belted and beaded folding clincher.

    The tire also comes in many other sizes and thread counts and tread patterns as well as puncture resistance and bead material.

    I found your list to lump att the many varied tires available is to miss many great tire options, and is far too abreviated.

    I feel your list is the poorer for it.

    Very good compilation of tires! I found out about Teravail thanks to this site. Now I’ve just installed Teravail Lickskillet 32 mm 120 tpi on my Specialized Diverge Expert on which I have a pair of NoxComposites A36D wheels. http://www.noxcomposites.com/a36d I run them tubeless @ 50/63 psi (front/rear) and they measure 33,5 mm wide on these 28 mm rims. Very nice pair of tires.

    I use Schwalbe Thunder Burt 27.5x 2.1 LiteSkin and love them! Using them tubeless with Orange Seal sealant. Roll great on pavement and hard pack and grip great in the turns on trails and gravel. I’m using the LiteSkin which tend to weep a little on the sidewalls at first but set up fine tubeless. They are available in SnakeSkin tubeless easy 2.1 and 2.25 width. Also available in 29 x 2.1 and 2.25 LiteSkin and SnakeSkin. Really good for a do it all tire if you don’t want to have to constantly change tires for different conditions. I use them in dry, wet, muddy, packed sand, and on pavement. They handle everything well. I’m sure other tires probably do each situation better but for someone like me that doesn’t have different wheel sets and doesn’t want to constantly change tires this does the trick.

    Awesome site. You’re missing a link to your own review for the Maxxis Rambler, though! http://ridinggravel.com/components/maxxis-rambler-40mm-tires-finish/
    Seems like these would be a good choice for Trans Iowa… I hope, anyway. 🙂 I may have Stans rims for that, making WTB tires (normally my preference) a bit of an issue.
