You’re on the right track increasing the volume (width) if you want improved control & more ‘compliance’ over rough stuff. Anything under 2.0 is for bike tracks & mad ass racers. It’s worth spending a little extra on a soft, or multi compound for the front tyre. They should outlast 2 back tyres & the last thing you want is your front end heading off on its own tangent in the middle of a corner. The club have been running basic skills instruction - keep an eye out for one of these sessions - that will give you a great boost also.

I'm guessing you're looking at cycling deal? In which case, specialised ground control 2.1 on the rear and butcher 2.3 on the front.  That will be the most confidence inspiring combination.
