Valve shim questio help from experts

My bike is reaching 20k service second service

Service manual recommend valve clearance check

I want to do it my self I have most of the Ducati special workshop tools (include DDS2.0 very hard to find the software which is missing) this is my first time doing Desmo valve as I never owned Ducati before for past 45 years of riding/servicing various bikes.

I have got the valve shim sizes used inside my bike when the dealer did the annual service at 10k and replaced 8 shims and I can see the part no's from the invoice.

my question for next service should I buy shims bigger size or smaller size. Eg. if my current shim is 2.90m I need buy 2.95 or 2.85 how the wear goes in your experience of servicing. Jap bikes need lower shims as valve seat wears more than valve stem.
