Since most weight is carried by the rear wheel, I used to go with 25 on the back and 23 on the front. These days, if they will fit, I go with 28s back and front. That is my present comfort factor set-up.

I learned in Jamaica to fit the biggest volume tire that I could. Thanks to 700c tire unavailability in rural Jamaica, I was forced to install a set of 32s on my Bianchi (just barely cleared the chain stays). A touch harder to make it go but the comfort factor went way up. These days, bigger is better in my world.
