Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

They will fit but speedometer will be off. First number is ***** of tire, 2nd number is ***** of tire, and 3rd number is ***** size. So since the tire is going to be bigger you would be going faster then speedometer shows, probably not much faster but maybe 5mph or so at 60. So I wouldn't do it unless it is a great deal and she doesn't mind having inaccurate speedometer. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
