Check your LBS and see what they have to offer. How much money do you want to drop on rubber? 25$/wheel? 50$/wheel?

there shouldn't be much difference in a 2.2 and a 2.1 ... size does vary by manufacturer though and kenda's 2.1's are usually larger than most , so you may have problems fitting 2.2 if the clearance is tight.
