Different size tires on rims
I have 700x32c vittoria's on my bike and i'm wondering if 700x23 or 26c tires could fit in it?
towards the bottom there is a really cool chart

I'm willing to bet the answer is yes
You should measure the rim, if you wanna be extra safe, but there really isn't that much of a difference. You have to be more careful going smaller than going larger though.
