I have a spare wheelset equipped with Kenda K838 slicks (only $18 a tire on Amazon). Though they're a little wide, at a high PSI the contact patch is minimal and makes for smooth and fast riding. If I let out just a little bit of air, they're also fine for majority of off-road riding that doesn't involve climbing (though why would I do that when I have a good set of knobby's). It's a pretty common practice, especially if people mostly ride pavement.
