700x22 tires fit on my wheels?

I have this vintage 1987ish Bianchi and it has the original FIR rims. It has the stock 700x23 tires on it now but wondering if 700x22 will fit on these rims?

700x22 is more common for tubulars but if you have clincher tires in that size they will fit.

For sure. Width isn't super important. You can probably put anything from a 700x20 to a 700x28 on your rim no problem. Whether a 28 will fit in your frame is a different story, but you didn't ask that question so I don't know why I'm answering it.
