29er cheap road wheel/tires

My father in law just bought a trek 29er mtb. He was asking what a decent wheelset would be to swap on his bike for road/bike path rides when he doesn't want to be on knobby tires.

I know road bikes fairly well but have no idea if there is a standard entry level mtb wheel and tire for such (something like aksiums)

Any help is appreciated

Just get a set of slick tires. No need to get an entirely new wheelset.
