What new tires should I get for my Pedego Interceptor?

I am super excited to get these tires! I'm on track for 3500 miles in my first year of riding and will likely get more miles in year 2 because I am hitting the ground running. It will be great not to have tire replacement being an annual thing. THANK YOU for the recommendation!!!
Are you still happy with the Schwalbe Big Ben Plus HS43911101381.01 26 x 2.15 vs Fat Frank 26 x 2.35?

I ended up getting the Schwalbe Super Moto-X. Awesome tire. I'm very happy with them! :) I ordered them online--couldn't get them via my bike repair guy OR via Pedego because for some reason the 26" size wasn't in the wholesale bike parts directories.

Good choice ebikemom! I also had flat problems with the stock Fat Frank's that came on my Interceptor. In my case, I switched tires on all three of my Pedegos to Schwalbe's Marathon Plus. The flat protection is similar to your Super Moto's but with a more aggressive tread. I have almost 2000 miles on them now with no issues.

Awesome, @6zfshdb ! I looked at the Marathon plus, too. I don't remember now why I chose one over the other. ... I might have written about it at the time!!!

Odd, you’d think a bike tech would realize we can inflate to max pressure and reduce tire surface on the roadway, or reduce some to improve traction and get a more cushioned ride.
