I've been on 3″ tires on one of my bikes for 3yrs and had a fatbike for 6yrs.
One thing I read about plus tires that doesn't jive with my experience is that
as you get to lower pressures you have less force pushing knobs down into the
ground add in the fact that big tires tend to have anaemic knobs to keep
weight reasonable and I find them very slippery on any surfaces that require
some bite from your tires. Roots, mossy rocks, mud, etc… I'd rather be on a
2.4″ tire with aggressive knobs.
There are certainly some trail conditions where a plus sized tire will grip
better than a skinny tire, but I don't find those conditions enough at home to
want to ride plus exclsuively or even most of the time.
