I didn't even think about that variable when I bought them. The original 28s looked quite narrow it looks to me like a 32 road tire wouldn't be a problem so if I want a cross tire it shouldn't be over a 28 which would still be adequate for my conditions.
What conditions are you riding in where you need such a puncture resistant tire? That's a crazy heavy tire, I bet it rides like garbage.
