Is it possible to buy and/or use 650c road tires on a 650c rim and road bike? Will the smaller rim work with road brake calipers?

Unless there is an adapter of some sort that I don't know about, the frame must be designed for 650c wheels. There is only a small amount of vertical play in brake pad adjusting.
