Keep in mind the Sheldon Brown chart uses inside-width of the rim. Most rim widths stated are outside width.
You could use any tire 700x28 or larger. I have a 24mm wide (outside width) Velocity Dyad rim. I've used everything from a 700x32 to a 700x47.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
