Front/Rear Wider tyres or Narrow tyres.OR. Wider rear, Narrower front.OR. Narrower rear, Wider front. Any opinion in this issue?
Most bikes come with identical tyres front and rear. This is all right for general use, but if you want to optimize your bike, you should consider using different tyres front and rear. The front and rear tyres have different loadings and different requirements.
Narrower Front, Wider Rear
If lightness is the primary goal, tyre width/weight is limited by the risk of pinch cut flats, a.k.a. "snake bites." Since there is more weight carried on the rear tyre, you can get away with a slightly narrower tyre in front than you can in back.
Wider Front, Narrower Rear
A wider front tyre makes sense in many applications, however, when handling and ride comfort are considered. A wider tyre will generally provide better cornering traction than a narrower one, assuming appropriate inflation pressure.
A wider tyre also provides superior shock absorbency. I personally prefer a slightly wider tyre in front, since I suffer from some wrist discomfort on occasion.

Thought about Wider Front and Rear Using Maxxis tyres. Want to know the best option for MTB and is Maxxis a good brand?
