While they will fit you need to consider the effect on the speedo which will be inaccurate (over reading) and road holding.

Also if that tyre size is not a standard fitment for the vehicle type then your insurance would need to be notified or may be invalid in the event of an accident.

Take a look on wheel-size.com , you can search by vehicle make / model.

Help me understand why tyre width would affect Speedo reading please?

 

Tyre width affects profile, hence speedo. 

It's a percentage of, but I can't remember the calculation.
