What are the smallest bicycle tires I can fit on my rims?

Recently purchased a 2020 CTY 1.1 Hybrid bike.

It came with 700 x 40 tires and I am trying to determine the narrowest tire I can use on the wheels that came with the bike.  Would like to go down to a 700 x 32 or 700 x 35.

Will the wheels that came with the bike work with either of those tire sizes.

I am currently putting about 200 miles a week on the bike.

Any tire suggestions?

Thank you.

@PapaMoorhead Thanks for reaching out!

You should be fine going down to a 700 x 35 tire on your bike. We'll have to check with the Co-op Cycles team to find out the rim width of the wheel to see if a 700 x 32 tire will fit. We'll circle back with you here when we find out. Thanks!
