    best 'regular' tire for the snow?

    The biggest tire I can fit is a 2.8 Michelin DH32. It actually rubs more on the fork than the frame. However, my DH32 are finally about to buy the farm. I am looking for a snow specific tire. Wondering what y'all recommended in terms of a non-fat standard tire for the snow.

    I was thinking Dirty Dan (bigger volume, so more float) or a Wet Scream (more aggressive, but only comes in 2.5, which is 2.3 in reality, since its a old version Maxxis)

    This would be for all conditions snow. Not ice, and not packed snow. Just your average snow.

    Anything else I should consider?

    PS: I don't ride enough in the snow to justify a fat bike yet, maybe next year
