35-38mm Tires for 550lbs load?

I've upgraded my 87 Sanatana to 700C rims. I'd like to ride with my son, with both of us on the bike and the bike, we tip the scales at 550lbs. I see the Schwalbe offerings, wondering what else is out there.

What 35mm to 38mm tires can handle the load?


What about Michelin City or Kenda Kwest?

If your interested in Schwalbes, there is a user named KOJAK on BF. He is a Schwalbe rep. Just send him a PM with your question. He is usually quick to answer (and honest as far as I can tell)
