Tubeless rim tape width

Hi, newbie question here,
I am planning a conversion to tubeless setup in my bontrager aeolus 5 wheels, but I have no clue what rim tape width to choose.
I am getting a Schwalbe one. The inner width of the rim is 19,5 mm.
So should I go with 19 mm tape or 21mm or even bigger?

  • For Bontrager wheels, it is best to use their specific Tubeless Rim Strip.
  • Pick white color (that is for road wheels), and likely you want the 700 x 19.5
