I really like the Michelin Country Rock tires I've been using for the last year or so. Not a true slick, but slick enough. I have about 700 miles on a pair and no flats.

Should work great. For a 58cm road bike you would probably want a 20-22" rigid MTB frame. A set of Michelin Country Rock tires and you'll be in business.
