Both of those bikes are low spec mountain bikes and an adult riding either of them off road would trash them in no time at all. They don't last long with teenager riding them round the streets, banging up and down kerbs. Thats not a comment on these particular bikes, it applies to all "mountain bikes" in this price range.

So, if you are going to put them to light use then either would do. Don't worry about the tyres, they can be changed.

For general riding and light off road use I tend to recommend the hybrid. Ride position is more comfortable for most, the gearing is higher and the drag lower making them a more relaxed and more comfortable ride. They are not suitable for hard off road but then, neither are the mountain bikes you are asking about.
