Wide tires vs narrow tires.

Dry conditions- Wide tire wins hands down. More contact area to the ground
Wet conditions- Depending but normally the wider tires wins here to due to moving more water through the treads and not making you slip.
Swamp conditions- Narrow tire more or less cuts through the water getting traction on the bottom if you can reach it and moving slowly through. Wide tires tend to float a little more surface area.
Snow Conditions- Again narrow tire wins because it cuts through the snow instead of push it and then you are more or less traveling on a blanket of snow and never really getting down to the road for traction.

If I am wrong in any of these areas please fix as you please.
