    I run the Snowshoe 2XL in front and a Surly Lou in back. (2XL won't fit in rear). This is a massive tire! Quite a bit taller, noticeably wider and considerably more volume (maybe 50% more) than the Lou. They pair nicely and work very well in snow, sand and wet conditions. The 2XL grips well in snow and noticeably better than Lou in icy conditions. If you don't need to go fast I highly recommend this tire.

    Pros
    Float
    Traction

    Cons
    Slow
    Expensive

    If you like fat and it fits your bike, this is the deal!

    Pros
    Amazing! I can fit this on my 190mm-spaced rigid on my SE [email protected] Can't wait for the snow to fall, but have to say that traction and minimum rolling resistance has been amazing so far. Was running two bulldozers, now replaced the front for a Snowshoe 2XL and can still go just as fast.

    Cons
    This is a pretty big tire, so I substituted fast action for all-terrain compatibility.

    I recommend these for summer fat biking, commuting or beer rides. They do well on dry dirt, gravel or paved. They are terrible in the mud and even worse in the snow. Use these to save your Bud/Lou tread during the warmer months.

    Pros
    fast...for a fat bike, less rolling resistance than most fat tires. Cheap!!!

    Cons
    Less traction than most fat tires, slightly heavier too

    Does not measure a full 4.7" in real life. Closer to 4.25". Better suited to use as a rear tire on fat bike frames that cannot take a full 4.7/4.8 tire.

    Pros
    Relatively light. Good traction on hardback trails.

    Cons
    A concerning amount of self steer when mounted on front. Average performance in snow.
