    They may fit your rims but your speedometer will not register the correct speed. When you go to a higher profile like you propose, you usually need to go to a narrower width tire. In your case you can go from 215/60-16 to 205/65-16 to maintain the correct overall tire circumference and not affect your speedometer reading. Go to www.tirerack.com and enter your year make and model of car and they will show you all the alternative tire sizes you can safely use on your vehicle.
