Tire width what do you run?

Just wondering for the people that run in mud and trail primarily. Do you run off set width ie(10" fronts and 12" in back) or do you run same width tire(10" width front and back). If so how come and what would be the benefits/drawbacks to either setup. Currently on 10-12 front and back. Looking to go to 10s only. Let me know what you think and why.

Thanks

I prefer nothing bigger than 10 and like the same size front and rear.

I run alot of hard surface and the fronts will wear out way before the rears, with the same front and rear you can rotate and get alot more miles out of a set, I like the way 9 or 10 spread out on the wheels, 12s are boderline to wide for stock rims in my opinion, the 12s put a little more pull on your set up, some people like the wider tire for the flotation or looks, just a matter of prefrence.
