what kind of riding do you do, what kind of riding to you want to do with the bike.
if you are going to stay mostly on pavement you should go with the skinniest tires you can find since it will be less drag.
i see no reason to go really wide, sure you get more traction but you get more drag i have a really old trek with no shocks and 1.8 tires as a bar bike and a trail work bike, something i can leave laying around and not worry or be pissed off it it gets taken. i hit some good trails with it on the way home from trail work all the time and it works just fine. i do have 2.3 on my Xcal
