The trend is wider for wider rims, but people have been putting 33mm + tires on road rims forever. I have been racing this season two sets of road clinchers: Mavic Ksyrium SSC and Shimano R-500. These are both under 20mm internal width. I even set up the Shimanos as tubeless with a WTB 37mm Riddler tire and they've worked flawlessly.
