I have two tire questions

I normally ride blue trails in Montgomery county MD. It’s mostly dirt with some rocks and roots. I don’t jump or do any drops. I am a recovering roadie trying to play in traffic less.

1 my current setup is a tubed 26x4 and I am 169#. The amount of riding gear I wear depends on the weather. How low can I safely drop the pressure on my current setup?

2 I want to convert to tubeless. While I am not opposed to riding in the snow we don’t get much here and if we do the snow is wet. I will probably ride in the sand more often as I visit my parents house in Delaware. 95% of my rides will be on trails that have some rocks and roots. What is a good tire to look for? I am not in a hurry if waiting a reasonable time gets a better tire. Thanks

Jumbo Jim’s? Cake eaters? I know the answer to these questions for my regular mtb and for my road bike. Help!

Is this in the wrong section?

This is the classifieds.

Go to the main fatbike forum and you'll get more opinions than you know what to do with.
Lol I figured I did it wrong
