I am using 18.5 internal width for Compass 28mm tires with plans to move up to 32mm. I have a wheel set with Alex A23 rims with 18mm internal with Continental GP4000SII in 28mm. These tires actually run 30.4mm wide. I am not sure if the GP5000 will be the same. It is not an issue on my bike, but on my wife's bike they will not fit on the front fork (height) and her brakes QR do not open wide enough for 30.5 width.
