OK to sub 60" blade for 59-1/2" blade?

Hi!
I'm a little new to bandsawing, so any help would be appreciated. I bought a Delta 9" bandsaw BS100 that works very well. However I need additional blades. I want bi-metal blades since they would seem to be more durable. However, 59-1/2" is not a common pre-made size. Sixty inches, though, does appear to be a common pre-made size. Will the 60" blades work OK on a saw designed for 59-1/2"? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
Thanks,
Mark

Go for it. The question isn't dumb. Your adjusters will take up much more than 1/2", though.
