Tire Help

I have not riden in a long time I have a 1997 GT Tequesta and I want to change out my tires. Right now I have 26 x 2.10 WTB VelociRaptor. I am looking for a low profile tire mainly for riding on pavement (95%)and very little off road action.

I don't want to spend a great deal and would like to keep my current rims

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I'm using road slicks, 26 x 1.5. Great for pavement.
