tires for the road

I'm going to do a Rosarito to Ensenada 50 mile ride in April. I currently have Wolverine 26 X 2.3 tires and should probably get some tires more suited for asphault. Any Recommendations?

Thanks

I use bontrager road warriors 1.5 in. They are cheap and efficient; I have had no problems so far.

I have some of those, they are awesome. If you want smaller, get some 1.5 Specialized Nimbus Ex's. I love them
