Can I put wider tires on my bicycle?
As long as you pay attention to the correct diameter size for your rim, and make sure that your frame has enough clearance, you should be able to put bigger, wider tires on your bike with no problems.
Do fat tires get more flats?
A fatter tire is more resistant to both pinch and puncture flats. A larger tire will also have softer ride (due to lower pressure) and better traction due to more tire in contact with the road.
How much air should I put in my fat bike tires?

What size tires can I put on my mountain bike?
Trail and all-mountain bikes will have tires in the 2.25″ to 2.4″ width range. Downhill bikes, which are meant to withstand the abuse of drops and rock gardens, are typically equipped with tires up to 2.5″ wide. Fat-tire bikes, which can be used for all-season trail riding, have tire widths of 3.7″ to 5″ or more.
Can I put gravel tires on a mountain bike?
Gravel bikes can fit wider tires, generally in the 38-45mm range. The majority of XC mountain bikes are designed to fit tires in the range of 2.1-2.4” wide (for reference, 50mm gravel tires measure about 1.97”). Mountain bike tires will have more weight and rolling resistance but offer better comfort and traction.
