Long story short: My main commuter from 1997 to 2015 was a mountain bike with 26" wheels. I have put about every type of tire on it. Wide, thin, tread, slick and hybrid (smooth center section, knobby shoulders...very bad all around). 1.5" slicks are the narrowest I'd go. I now run 1.85 slicks and am very, very happy.

In the winter it wears 1.65 studded snow tires with aggressive tread. Those are not so great on dry pavement, but incredible on snow and ice.
