I've been using 32mm tyres on my Open 4 ceramic rear for a decade, loaded and unloaded, never had any issues with the tyre squirming including going around bends at speed, the Open 4 is even narrower than the Open pro.
I like the Jack Brown 'green' tyre but if you want a bit more protection/meat on the tread go with the blue variant.

Not a tyre I was aware of but, yes, they sound very useful. I may well give them a try some time soon. Made by Panracer too, which is a name I respect. Thanks.
