Not knowing where you are, get yourself some tight shorts (yeah, bicycle shorts,) some tights, some wicking (tight) shirts, and a semi tight windshirt.
You will be surprised at how much easier you go through the air.
As to tire pressure, it's a very fine line you tread, but maybe not as much at your weight. Find a point where comfortable pressures meet firm handling, and pinch resistance, and you are there. At your weight, you can probably get by with quite a bit less than max pressure. Then, keep your eyes open for road hazards, and make yourself light when you encounter them.
