Hey, I am riding a Kona Five-o Deluxe with Maxxis Minion 2.35" tires right now. I am planning a pretty long bike trip which will total about 7 hours of Highway riding (130km). I would like to get some tires better suited for the trip then the big knobby tires I have now. I mostly trail ride and don't commute a lot, so I don't want to spend a ton of money.
Are any of these going to be worth a purchase? I would like to keep it under $40 for a pair. Also, forgive my lack of knowledge but will I need smaller tubes as well?

I'm thinking the 1.75" slicks would be the best for speed and they are also the cheaper option. Would a bit of light gravel riding be totally out of the question on these tires? There is a chunk of railroad section I would like to bike on, so some gravel road use would be nice but not totally necessary.
