Recommendations and reality are often different.
The Ope Pro and the CXP33 are quite popular tires in the MTB & Cyclocross ventures and as such are often found sporting larger than "normal" tires.
I've been running IRC Mythos 700x42 CX on my CXP33 rims for over a year without issue.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
