Trek 1000 and tire width

I am curios how wide of a tire I could run on my Trek 1000? I know I can measure the frame and all that, but maybe there is more to it than that?

Thanks DieselDan. It has 25's now. Eyeballing it looked like 28's would not be a problem, but like I said, not sure of all the factors to be aware of.
