I think you can but maybe you'll have only like 1/2mm of space between each side so you need to know how to true rims good.

why!? honestly, why? riders have used a narrower tire in the back for years for good reason.

apparently it's trendy to make your bike look and feel like a monster truck now? stick to a narrow tire in the back, it will make your bike more nimble.

Because they are wider, your momentum is more spread out, and more of the impact is absorbed by the ground.
Which means less of the impact is absorbed by you and your bike.

Bigger tires in the back = softer landings= helps preserve your wrists and wheel.

That being said, I still prefer 1.8-1.95 in the back haha.

what? tires don't take that much of the impact. landing with your knees instead of your wrists will help your wrists...

there isn't any point in having that wide of a rear tire unless you're riding on loose dirt.

It's a noticeable difference, bu at the same time not very big. I messed around with it for a week or so. I'd still take a skinny in the back.
