Hi guys I'm getting new tries soon I need to know information about the sizes between 2.20 and 2.30. Could I get both tries and which one should I get one for the front and rear

2.20 is smaller, so it goes faster. most people run a smaller tire up front, fatter tire behind. fat tire to absorb impact, small tire to go faster. but there isn't much a difference between 2.20 and 2.30

Clark said bigger tries absorb impact when jump off stuff and smaller tries goes fast. What about two big tries in front and back. 2.30 front 2.30 back.

I guess theoretically you'd go slower but have more cushioning and be able to ride over gravel a bit better than a tire with identical tread but of a smaller size. it all comes down to preference really. I think the trend nowadays seems to be going with bigger tires like chase hawk now has a 2.4 in front or something. I tried 2.35 and it just felt weird to me. 2.25 2.1 will always be my combo. its just preference though.

I might get a 2.20 in front or find a 2.25 the and 2.30 back. But the tries I was getting are only 2.20 and 2.30

Smaller back tire will give you more precision while in a manual (like carving left or right in a manual). Similarly, a skinny tire on front with give you a little more carve control. But bigger tires will definitely help soften your landings and helps with bump-jump and wallie stuff.

However, beware that big tires also rub more on ledges and rails, so that might take some getting used to when it comes to trick like feeb heard 180 or pegs to hard 180. I have a friend who swears by 1.95 in the front and back for minima resistance, he runs 4 pegs and basically does nothing but grinds.
