"Also, do I NEED to raise the front fender to run a knobby front tire?"
Not if it's loose and sloppy, the heavy clay stuff that builds up yes.
TKC-80's were the best but I hated them on road, K60's were adequate on the clay based roads around here even when it was wet. Didn't have the grip the TKC-80's did in mud, but worked well enough and didn't give me the grief TKC-80's did on seal. Most of my riding was on seal, only about 10% dirt.
