    New question here. Flat-resistant fat bike tires for road riding

    I have an electric fat bike that I use for commuting and beach riding and I keep getting punctures from road debris. I've tried 26x4.0 Schwalbe Fat Frank and Maxxis Mammoth EXO TLR tires in both tubed and tubeless configurations. My ideal tire would have a profile like the Mammoth but with a DH casing or even an aramid layer in the casing similar to flat-resistant road tires.

    Can anyone recommend a tire that would be good for me?

    You need motorcycle tires for your motorcycle.

    Set your tires up tubeless with a small amount of typical sealant. Once the beads are set and not leaking, install Multi-Seal sealant. It is quite thick and should seal most punctures.

    The other option would be Mr. Tuffy liners. They will add weight, but that should not be a problem on an e-bike.

    I'm not aware of any fat bike tires with flat protection built in, probably a small market to sell to. Maybe tire liners would work for you? Obviously it adds weight but any flat resistant fat tire wouldn't be light weight anyway and maybe less of an issue for an e-bike.

    That's just the first thing I found, could be other options.
