Yet another door and RO question

installing new doors in my hallway for 3 bedrooms, bathroom and 2 closets. When I took the 28" bath door off, it had 1 1/2" of shims on each side and the RO is ~32". When I measured the replacement 28" door, it will fit but the trim only overlaps the RO by abt 1/4" on each side. I'm sure the answer is YES, but should I return the door and get a 30" door?

Yes, a 32" RO is for a 30" door. It may mean cutting your baseboard back since your casing will likely be wider than before.
