    I don't think the a-arms effect what tire, it shouldn't be a problem
    I run 22" fronts, don't think I've ever seen anyone run 23's ?

    Ok. Thought a arms could affect how much clearance you would have when you turn as far as you can left or right. Found good deal on some 23" tires, just not sure if they would work. Do mostly all trail riding in the Rocky coal regions of PA and figured the bigger tires would help clear and get over more obstacles.
