Hmmm, so just over 28.575 outer. Could be around 22-25 inner. I'd stick to at least 1.5" if I were you.
Unless you like experimenting with $20 worth of tires (Slick City). Sometimes you find Performance Bike mechanics that are cool enough and not busy enough to give it a trial run with something like this. Try first thing in the morning on a weekday perhaps. That is if you really want the most roadie, lightest, slickest, least expensive possible tires on your bike.
My local Performance also carries Ritchey Tom Slicks in 1.4" which might work and are also reasonably priced and ride nicely on the roads.
With rims that width go with some wider tires (1.75+) and live with the weight if you don't want to worry about keeping your PSI just right and the possibility that the tires' beads will not seat properly.
