They will be 10mm thinner and 13mm shorter also. Ask the store selling the tires.

575

Remember when getting tires the first number is width the second number is depth and the third number is rim size so in aggreeing with john yes there will be 10mm difference so as long as u dont mind the difference there is no real issue going with a 215 instead of a 225 the manufacturers recomended is just for optimal use

should not be an issue
