If you need to save a couple bucks, the roly-poly's are about $3 dollars less a piece.
I also really like continental ultra-sports (I like all their tires actually) they are really inexpensive 19-25 depending on your retailer, they wear like Iron, are quiet, smooth, and again very inexpensive for the price.
As far as size go you might try taking the bike to the lbs and see what the biggest tire you can fit in is. If the 32's fit, so much the better, but if not, I have trouble believing that the 28's wouldn't.
