    bigger front tire for 2015 farley

    hey guys. i sold my mayor thinking i didnt enjoy riding in snow as much as i thought i would but then i miss it a lot now i dont have it. found a good deal on 2015 farley but compared to mayor with 4.8 tires, farley comes with 3.8. are there any benefit to putting a larger tire in front? i will be riding on snow 99 percent of the time and just wondering if it would help with float or traction...thanks

    Yup, lower pressure, bigger footprint. Running a studded snowshoe on the front of mine right now. 4.8 silica compound.
