Tire recommendations for iZip Dash 29'ers

Howdy, all -- Hoping for specific tire recommendations. Whatever you have tried and had good OR bad experiences with, I'm interested in -- specific size, profile, brand, vendor, etc.

For context, the stock tires are fine on my new/used 2014 Dash, but I'm 240 lbs and wore them out quickly on previous bikes, so expect the same here. I've seen Schwalbe and Kenda tires in what appears to be the right size, but am interested in your breadth of experience. The 2016 Dash now comes with "Kenda Kwick Bitumen 700x45c" but any and all recommendations are appreciated. I ride 10-20 miles daily, in the so-called wilds of Toronto, so temperatures vary widely, as do the potholes, road salt volume, and other conditions.

This forum has been great, and I appreciated all the posts which already led me to great 29er fenders and rear rack. Riding in as cold as minus 20c, so far, awesome!

Thanks in advance!

Just fyi, my stock tires have gone 2000 miles without incident. But I only weigh 160.
