Default 215 60R16 will this work?

Hi everyone. I am a new pt cruiser owner. My neighbor has snow tires that he wants to get rid of and I want to find out if it will fit my car.

My car is a 2002, Limited Edition. It has 205 55 R16 on it right now.

Will 215 60 R16 tires work for me without any problems? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The tires will technically fit, but the speedometer will be off by about 5% slow.There is also about an inch difference between the diameters of the two sizes, with the 215 tire being "taller".

Tire size calculator

Check out this tire size calculator to see what I mean. Hope this helps.
