Wanting to change to a different tire size

I have a 1993 Thunderbird LX with the OE rims from the factory, the 7 spoke silver magnesium alloy rims. The factory specs call for a 215/70R15 tire on it. I was wondering if I would have any problems going to a 225/60R15 tire on it or if it's even a good idea.

You should have no problem with that size tire.

It will make your speedometer read 4.5% faster than you are actually travelling, but other than that, you should have no problems.
