Yes, download a GPS Speedo app to your Android or I phone to ensure Speedo reads correct to prevent tickets to the policemans ball. Lol. That small of a change in tire size shouldnt be a problem.

your speedometer would be about a half mph off. if it said 65, you would actually be going about 65.5

My concern would be that normally skinnier tires make for better (safer) winter tires. A wider tire than your all season tires doesn't really make any sense although it is probably do-able.
