The American Historical Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) is a member-owned organisation based in the United States. AHRMA organises motorcycle races and competitions for motorcycle enthusiasts who restore vintage bicycles. AHRMA members compete in seven different racing disciplines, divided into racing categories by age and ability. AHRMA sanctions the proper usage of tires, wheels, brakes, engines, and other components in competition. Section 14 of its rule book identifies the proper tires allowed in competition.

Dirt-Bike Racing

AHRMA currently sanctions several categories of dirt-track, off-road and dirt-bike racing competitions. Categories include dirt-track, observed trials and cross-country. Participation in properly sanctioned competitions requires the proper usage of 18- and 19-inch tires. In accordance with the official AHRMA Rule Book Section 14, wheel width cannot exceed 2.11 inches in all classes, and tires with knobs are strictly forbidden.
