Mavic Open pro and Tires width - How wide can you go?

I just bought a crosscheck and since I can also use road wheels with them, I have a set of Mavic Open Pro's 36 hole and was wondering how wide of Cross Tire you can fit on the rim. These are the newer style open pro's a little boxier style. 700 x 32's look fine but can I go up to 35's or 38's.. Any input appreciated.

Thanks..

I've been known to use my Open Pros with my 2.2 29'r tires which turn outto be about a 52c tire. So long as I don't go below 30 pounds, I've had no problems at all. That aside, I run 34c's on my cross bike wheels (again open pro) and have zero problems.

I run 42c tires on my open pros with no problem. They were a PITA to mount though.
