Not too long ago there was a 'what tire on hooked/smooth wall 27" rim' thread here; a quick search should find it.
FWIW, I mounted up a set of Contis I got in a trade on a set of smooth wall Weinmann rims and ran them up to 100psi with no problems. Been riding them for a week with to problems, albit while watching them very closely.
You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.
