right now i have a 2.25 premium resist on the front and the 2.0 on the back. im thinking about switching the back out for a 2.25 animal glh. is there any advantage/disadvantage to having a skinnier or fatter tire on the back?

mad street points for huge tires :D
sure it adds weight to your back end, but landings aren't as harsh

learno how to land smoother and you wont need huge tires all around while saving weight

does this make my signature look fat?

well fatter tires are more grip and everything feels better with fat tires in my opinion, but like it all depends what you like

so basically the only advantage is softer landings and more grip with a fatter tire on the back?

don't put a fatter tire on the back than the front. your wrists will hurt more when you land and it feels weird
