Basically you want the biggest tires that will fit, but it's not a matter of fitting the wheels -- almost anything will fit almost any rim. The fit issue is with the frame and fork.

If a lot of your ride is on pretty loose and rough stuff, tires with a little tread may help, but it doesn't matter as much as you might think. Cross tires may be a good choice - if they'll fit your frame and fork.

What's your bike, and what rims do you have? Take a look at the clearances with your present tires. How much room is there where the clearance is smallest?

And how much is the load (you plus bike plus whatever you carry)?
