I'm trying to see what my options are for some rims/wheels that are below 30mm for depth, but still 21mm internal width. Most rims that are below 30mm seem to still be 18mm internal width.

Any suggestions?

Try the 25mm x 25mm rim from Light Bicycles. I have a pair of clincher rim brake versions on my Emonda SLR - they make a lighter disc version w/o the brake track. Highly recommend

Did you read OP's question at all?
That LB is 17.9mm internal width and 25mm external width. Exactly what floppyb state that he don't want.

@floppyb
For your spec, look for gravel/CX rims rather than road.
How about this, 28mm deep, 22mm internal width and 29mm external width.

Not quite 21mm internal (only 20mm), but I've been really happy with my DT Swiss R470s. 24mm ext, 20mm int, 23mm deep

I haven't tried the DT Swiss RR481, but they do meet your dimension requirements: 26mm ext, 22mm int, 25mm deep

Guess I missed that. Didn't realize they're that narrow. LB makes this one that fits the bill

They seem to recommend everything from a 23c to a 50c will work on that rim. What would be the ideal tyre size for it?

Do you have experience with EIE rims or build wheels?

EIE have one on their site at 19.2 mm and 25mm depth that looks pretty good to me. I haven't used anything from them but have stuff from Carbonfan and BTLOS.

dt 545d 21i/27e, 19mm deep, only 32 holes, 585g
dt xr331 20/24, 18, 28 or 32 holes, 380g (also the cheaper/heavier X392)
dt xr361 22,5/26, 19,5, 28 or 32, 410g (also the cheaper/heavier X412)
mavic xc821 21/24, 20, 28 or 32, 454g

or if you need 24h you can go with dt rr481 (22/26/25/485g) or r500 (22/26/23/495g)

there are probably many other XC rims out there that meet these specifications and XC rims are almost never over 25mm in depth

DT Swiss XM401. I've built a couple of pairs of wheels with them, and they true up easily and remain true in use. They come supplied with PHR washers and aluminium squorx nipples, and are pretty reasonably priced. Only 28 or 32 drilling, though.
