I went ahead and got the Double Fighters. They look like they're between the tires you posted as far as aggressiveness of the side lugs. They should be arriving tomorrow, so we'll see how they do. My biggest worry is getting a flat from the goat head thorns we have here, but the other day the road didn't seem to have many/any on it, so hopefully these tires will do ok. I've looked at those Kenda K838's before and they look pretty good. If the thorns don't cause me any problems with the Double Fighters, I'll probably try them next. If thorns turn out to be more of a problem than I'm anticipating, then something beast like Schwalbe Marathon Plus' might be in my future.

Still not sure which kit to get. I would prefer to keep the total for the kit and battery under $1000, but that gets difficult with a nearly $600 battery...
