    Yes, you can...Size does matter, but not in your situation..

    No, you can go down as small as the rim but no smaller.

    Any rim will fit a range of tire widths. If your bike came with 2.0" wide tires, it can certainly take 1.9" tires too. Here is Sheldon Brown's (RIP) chart showing compatibility. For the metric-challenged, 1 inch is 25.4mm.
