Replacing old tires...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Replacing old tires...

I need some new tires.
I've looked at the Michelin Pro2 tires, and they've got raving reviews, but for a set, they're anywhere from $75 to $100.
I'm looking to spend more like $50 or maybe $60 for two.
Anyone have recommendations of which, for this price range, would give me the smoothest ride and quickest ride?

probikekit.com sells the ProRace2 for about $27 each with free shipping to the USA. Delivery can take a couple of weeks, though.
