Keep blowing out rear / not the right bike ?

hey all, need some advice here.
I keep blowing out my rear tire going over curbs, im riding some cheepo Shimano ive had for years and i want to pick up something new. I used to ride motocross and i guess im a little abusive and wonder what kind of bike can take a thrashing ? So many styles to choose from and im pretty confused. Im about 230lbs and can't believe all the differnt bikes there are, Mountain Bikes, Road Bikes, Hybrid Bikes, Sport and touring Bikes, BMX Bikes, Freestyle Bikes. Im thinking at the very least something with a rear suspension that'll handle rough riding. Im not an expert or don't race or whatever i just like to ride hard and need a bike that'll handle some off road as well but not touring. What style of bike is suited for this ?
