Also living in Mn, my experience with 2" tires was pretty bad. They float around on top of the snow enough that traction is a problem (compared to skinnier versions). But they aren't wide enough or float enough to be maintain their own balance and stay above the snow, like fat tires do.

The 45nrth Gravdals seemed to be the best tires for grip, short of a fat bike. Definitely not the fastest, but they seemed to be the grippiest and best able to handle mixed snow/ice/rut conditions.

It's always possible my experience with 2" Nokians wasn't typical but I sold them as I wasn't wasn't a fan. Looks like came out with Kavha 2.2" now, maybe they have a better design or something.
