I don't know much about ebikes but I would dare to say that, with a full suspension, the 4" tire is all about traction. I honestly can't think of very many "normal" conditions where you would actually be able to experience this traction advantage. It is my understanding that the original fat tire bikes were designed with snow in mind.
