The Leaf Tires (written as Leaf Tyres in the British English version) are downloadable tire parts that are included in the Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content pack for Mario Kart 8. As the name implies, the tires are emblazoned with an icon of an Animal Crossing leaf from the Animal Crossing series. The tire treads also resemble the texture of the grass in the Animal Crossing games. They are statistically identical to the Roller, Azure Roller, and Button tires; they offer a high acceleration boost and a handling boost at the cost of mitigating speed, weight, and traction, but unlike both of the Roller tire sets as well as the Button tires, the Leaf Tires are as large as the Standard tires. CPU Male Villager uses these tires whenever he uses the Streetle, while CPU Female Villager and Isabelle may use these tires when using the City Tripper.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, these are unlocked randomly by collecting coins. The Leaf Tires have had their stats altered, now only sharing them with the Button tires. They now reduce the water speed, air speed, acceleration, ground handling, water handling, air handling, traction and miniturbo stats to some extent, while the anti-gravity speed stat is improved.
