Ah, I stand corrected. However, I still feel 40mm tires are too narrow for your weight. Why did you pick that size? What kind of bike are you riding? I think 50mm should be your minimum and closer to 60mm; something like the Schwalbe Big One would be ideal.

But that's just me. I too know the pain of a weight-related double pinch flat and am much happier riding wider tires. In my case I went from 700cx25 to 650bx42; the change has been amazing.
