    What are the largest tires that will fit in a Fatty Frame?

    I am looking at getting new tires for my fatty. I have the Fatty Carbon fork. Does anybody know how large of a tire I can go with on the Fatty? Will a 4.8 Snowshoe XL fit?

    Thanks

    Tried my good old Bud 4.8 tubed to see if I can use it and it kinda fit but the tire hair scraped the carbon fork a little. I removed the tubes and ran it tubeless and it expanded, it was not possible to fit in. Buds are huge and fantastic front snow tires. Sadly sold it off and got van hellgas.
