help with tire size

does anyone know if i can put 225/55/17 tires on our car. I just bought a set of 17 inch rims. The tires i want to buy i think came off an audi allroad,they are all season tires.the tires are used but not by much, and the guy has a couple other buyers waiting.When i visually measured the profile of these tires to our stock 205/60/16 they seemed maybe a quarter to half inch thicker.I need help guys let me know if they will fit. thanks

thickness is not a problem, 225/55/17 tire is too tall and that is problem.
your speedometer will be off by +4.1%.
