    Best Rear Tire for a 29er Half Fat???

    I have a half fat that i took in the snow for the first time today. We got pummeled by snow in colorado this weekend and I had to take advantage of it.

    My super worn wtb-nano raptor in the rear is not working for snow, and I am wondering what yall think the best rear snow tire is. I am thinking of getting a kenda nevegal.

    Thanks

    It depends on what your bike can fit. The bigger the better with aggressive tread is what I've found works best

    I would go as wide as your frame allows, maybe even studded??

    I stumbled upon this thread because I have the same basic question. I was actually trying to avoid too much tread after looking at the larry and endo, so if someone else could confirm that I actually want more tread...
    As far as tires, Outside Outfitters has Continental Mountain, Trail, and X King in foldable/2.4" for $35 right now. Would one of these three work well? Thanks all.

    I'd say the widest and knobbiest you can get., your rear is the driving force if it don't bite, you won't go forward.
