    New question here. What's the widest tire you are going to be riding for the winter?

    Winter just around the corner has me contemplating putting 2.8 or 3.0 width tires on my Cannondale Trail 2 2.75, I'm thinking it's got the clearance and that will make winter riding fun without the need for the N+1 bike purchase.

    It's got me curious what are the widest tires you guys are running on your hardtail 27.5 and do you see a signficant benefit over say stock widths of 2-2.2 tires that come on your bikes now? And do you run wider in the front than the rear?

    I'm thinking of getting some Schwalbe Rocket Rons, 3.0 front 2.8 rear if I can get away with it (in both a budget sense and frame fitting sense).
