    But to you know whether I can possibly fit bigger tires on these wheels? just in case if I feel like it after few years..
    If you can find a decent set of 25x4 but they are kinda like hens teeth and you need the adapters and an approval.

    So, for bigger tires I would need 6" wheels and another disc brake setup as well?

    I am looking at my options and when I contacted Grove I was told the 4" aluminum wheels are no longer available but they can offer me the magnesium ones. I am no expert on all of this but magnesium in wheels? is that good?

    Magnesium is lighter, only bad if you land on salt water beaches in my experience. When I ordered new wheels and brakes i got Magnesium because it saved weight.
