I run 160mm rotors on both of my 29ers. I've had no problems with them stopping my 170 lbs of weight.

As for tires, I've got the 2.4 Mtn Kings on my rigid SS and they are wonderful tires in all kinds of trail conditions. Be aware that they run smaller than Conti claims them to be. I think these tires are only marginally wider than the 2.1 Ignitors I have on my hardtail. FWIW, the Ignitors are a great tire on dry hardpack, not so great on slick trails or in the mud.
