You definitely want slicks, and you'll get a lot of votes here for different brands. Do a search here for "slicks".
My vote is for Specialized Fatboys, 26x1.25, at 95-100psi. My wife and I have been touring and commuting on them for years, could be over 80,000 miles total, and personally I'm not gonna go with anything else
These are true slicks, no tread. Don't let that scare you, tread on bike tires isn't necessary unless you're in mud -- you don't need "semislick" tires for road touring.
