    Do you commute on streets? If so I'd probably go Conti Cruise Contact. (it's 2.0, though, if that matters to you for some reason)

    Schwalbe big Apples are another smooth fattie option @ 2.35".

    If you really don't care about weight you should write letters to Maxxis urging them to make a niner Hookworm. Those things are super thick, and weigh a ton, like heavier than your wheels.

    I usually go for lighter, skinnier, faster tires and use Mr. Tuffy to prevent punctures.

    Oh, woops when I saw the specific 2.2" I did think you meant tubes. I like to run light tubes also, and let Mr. Tuffy prevent punctures.
