Welcome to the forums! You'll find lots of great advice here. Congrats on the Jake the snake. It is a great bike, and you will love it. very versatile. For tires, I would recommend the Panaracer t-serv protex. They have a Kevlar bead, excellent flat resistance and good wet weather grip.
Comes in 25c, 28c, 32c, and 35c - choose per your weight and comfort preferences.
The smaller sizes come in blue, yellow, or red if that's your thing - Blue might go nice with the 2011 JTS.
I have 32's with the reflective stripe and they weigh in at less that what the mudslingers do.
