Velox comes in a narrow width (16mm) but same thickness. I recently had a couple of lift offs of the tire while inflating and finally traced this to shifted rim tape that got up into the hook area on the rim and interfered with tire seating, The rear wheel had offset spoke holes which put them closer to the bead seat area and over 6-8yrs there had been some drift of the tape. Probably
best you heed Zipps provisos here and use their tape. After all it should last years.
