Wider 29" rims?

(-there is another general 29-er thread but it has descended into irrelevancy-)

I am wondering if anyone makes them.
Most I have found specs on are only around 1"/25mm width.
Basically, wider == better.
Ideally I'd want something towards 35mm, "downhill"-widths, but am not holding my breath.
?
