I think i'll actually try answer your question.
The schwalbe ultremo 23mm tires above are fitted to a 23mm internal width rim and is not recommended but does work there only for good roads and all these road race tires will puncture if there's alot of rubbish to ride over.
Below are 28mm vittoria randonneur there's other similar tires and are perfectly suited to any 23 to 24mm internal width rim these tires show hardly any differance in speed to 23mm race tires and are bombproof against punctures on any terrain.
I'm about to try a 35c cyclocross tire for light trail work and I'm taking a chance they'll fit might post a picture later.
The 28c continental double fighter2 tires below are hopeless against punctures and to small and narrow for trails. These spinergy 29er wheels cost around $550 on ebay.
