Fender width?

Got a 2011 Novara Safari touring/commuting bike. It's got Continental 40mm tires on it. I need fenders.

I saw that REI has 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, etc. What size do I need if I want to keep these stock tires? I figured at least 40mm but probably 50mm if I want a little clearance. I don't know how wide is to wide, however, and what detriments would be present from selecting too wide.

Thanks!
