    Probably nylon belted, but they should still have rubber on them... or at least all of the dirtbike tires that I have seen are rubber. Most bias ply car/truck tires are also Nylon belted where radials are steel belted, but they still all have rubber.

    Most of the natural rubber used for making tires comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. I don't know where the synthetic rubber comes from.

    Synthetic rubber is man-made and is produced from petroleum, you know, like the roof/oil problem. That or it comes from fake trees.:cool1:
