I run a 48mm on the front and 42mm on the back, as that is the widest that fits. The wider front gives more suspension and traction especially off-road.

Mine was in the context of my 650b gravel wheels, in case that wasn't obvious. For road, I use 38mm slicks front/back, but maybe I should put in a larger tire in the front. At some point, toe overlap becomes an issue.

But 28 front, which is what you were asking about, should be fine. (I can get 28mm front/rear on a 1980s bike.)
