Tires for a deep v?

Im looking to buy a new tire and this time I want something long lasting and fat. Im currently riding on a 28c and I want to ride something like a 32c. I heard 32c are smooth riding.. =]

I was wondering if a 32c would fit on a deep v rim. Cause from the looks of it, the rim looks kinda narrow.

And what brand do you recommend that won't F* me up. I currently ride cheap kenda and got like 4 flats in like 2 months. -_-

Yeah it can fit. It a rear rim.

What brands do you recommend that are long lasting. I was thinking Soma everwear. or something.

Fyxation offers 28mm tires that ride more like a wider tire (in my opinion, as they seem way bigger than the 25mm ones they replaced) and they're having a contest right now. Free is good.
