Hey Glowboy (or others)... 700 X 45 tire questionralbert

So i tried a 45mm wide tire in an IF fork and it fit. my question is can you fit a 700 X 45 tire on a "standard" road rim (like an open pro), or at that width do you need a touring/29er rim?

Mutanoraptor 700x44 on a MA-3 works fine (nm)pauly

Seems to work fine with everything from 23c slicks to the 45c Smoke.
