if you have 2 of the same tire on your bike but one is 1.8 and one is 2.0 which usually goes on the front and the back? right now I have 1.8 on the front and 2.0 on the back but I've heard people telling me the otherway around, but the way I have it seems to make sense to me. correct me if I'm wrong.

Ive heard the bigger in the front cause no one wants to lose traction on the front tire. By the way you go to UNH? I love that place.

2.0 in the front. Always want the bigger tire in the front. No matter the type of riding. (assuming)
But yeah it's deffinatly wider tire in front.

You dont ALWAYS want a wider tirer in the front......but its all really preference.

But not thatd youd really notice a difference in a tire that big......just run dual 2's.

wider tire in front is usually a good set up. narrower tire in the rear gives you less rolling resistance, and the wider one up front gives you more control, and factor in that you should be using your front brake more than your rear. p.s. unless the 1.8 is for the mud i would recommend atleast 2.0/2.1 for trail use, or even racing.
1.95 both ends. Used to run 2.1 front / 1.8 rear.
