    Currently running 26 x 2.10 - suggestions for a road tire for commuting instead?

    I'm sure this has been asked 1,000 times so I apologize if that's the case.

    The bike I just got has knobby 26 x 2.10 tires on it. I am going to be using this bike mainly for commuting / errand running and general exercise so I was thinking of switching to a more "road worthy" tire instead.

    I have read up a bit on this and "seems" that 26 x 1.95 is a good size? should I go with slick or semi-slick? Suggestions that won't break the bank? Say maybe $30 a tire? do I need to spend more? puncture protection?

    Sorry, XTR wheelset running tubeless with Schwalbe HD 2.35 front and NN 2.25 rear, great setup.

    My road setup is XT wheelset with Continental Double Fighter II 1.9". I like them, smooth rolling but still have a little grip on the sides for urban trails. They were $22 each.
