120 or 130 17" rear tires are what people use up front.
out back people sometime go up to 150 or down to 130.
if you go heavier then the bike feels more sluggish.

i think a 120 up front with a 130 in the rear would work nicely.
mitas e07 rears are great long mileage 50/50 tires.
up front a rear mefo explorer 120 can be flipped around to match that mitas.
remember front chevron designed tires run backwards to the tread design and confuse people at times.

this tire package will work great everywhere and still perform nicely on the pavement and last a very long time.
you of course can go cheaper with a shinko 244 or 705 front and rear and call it a day.
4.6 = 120
5.1 = 130

another solid rear choice is bridgestone tw22
