76A or 78A should do well for you. Being a heavier guy, the 78A may you may be better off with the 78A since they're not as soft and won't "squish" on you as much. Then again some brands' 76A may have better rebound and performance than others, so it could be hit or miss.

For instance, I was in a similar situation as you: took 10 years off, got into weightlifting and gained 70lbs., then came back to hockey. I've had some Rink Rat Hot Shot wheels, which are rated "XXX Grip" and I believe translates to a 76A rating. So far they're going on 2.5 years playing 1-2x per week indoors, and still have plenty of life left. To compare, I just bought some Labeda 76A Fuzions and tore one up in under 5 games. The rest are still alive, though. Some are better than others, that's for sure.
