I’m going to upgrade bikes on Tuesday to a Specialized FSR stump jumper fatty from a Trek Fuel EX5. If I don’t like the fat tires, is it possible to change them out for regular ones?

Is this even worth doing?

Not a good idea.
If you change to 2.3 2.6 tyres you will have a lower bottom bracket.

Todays bike already have a very low bottom bracket, lowering that will just cause a lot of pedal strikes.

Maybe it could be better to change to 29 if you want to use skinny tires.
