Velocity Chukker are really strong, but, mostly SS.

I'd say 15mm.

High-end, racing wheels will be ~13mm. Cyclocross and commuter wheels will be 15-18mm. 29er MTB wheels will be ~20mm.

I've run 40mm, on my Tricross (16mm). But, I've seen a 50mm, 29er MTB tire on a Tricross, too.
Thanks for the tips - I apologize for not providing more data. I was ticked off when I wrote that last night. This is for my daily commuter, a 2010 Specialized Sirrus. 700c, 32h, 8 gears inna back. Need something double-walled and durable.
