I have upgraded the backwheel on my hybrid bike to one suitable for a 285 pound rider. Are there tires suited for 285 pound (130 kg) riders?
I would go as wide as your frame and fork will allow. The increased volume will support the weight better than a skinnier tire at higher pressure.
As suggested I am going with touring tires for my Norco hybrid.
A Schwalbé Marathon supreme on the back and a Schwalbé Marathon supreme on the front.
My suggestions would be go for the broader ones with advanced polymer (synthesised ones) with larger tread blocks for a better grip on the roads.
