Check out the drop bar conversion thread in the classic/vintage section, lot's of setups with slick 26" tires.

I have Continental town and country tires on most of my bikes, cheap wire bead but honestly ride pretty great. I think it's because they have pretty thin sidewalls.

Also tried Tioga powerblock and Maxxis DTH tires, both folding beads with some very shallow tread. Both ride great and almost cheap if you look around ebay/amazon. Mostly stick to the Continental inverted tread town and country because they throw way less gravel at you.

Always wanted to try Kojaks, at least on paper they look good and are crazy light. The DMR supermoto is another one I see on the 26" drop bar thread, similar to the Maxxis/Tioga.

Continental Tow and Country comes in 1.9" and 2.1" I think.
Tioga Powerclock comes in 2.1"
Maxxis DTH comes in 2.15" and 2.3"
DMR Supermoto comes in 2.2"
