    Probably... But it is almost an inch taller. Mount one and see if it rubs in any position. You are going 27.5" tall to 28.4" not much but you never know.

    An inch taller, not quite, but close. 225/65 and 225/70 are only 11.25mm different in radius (5% of 225), 22.5 mm in diameter (7/8'). The biggest concern would be snow packing in the wheel wells though, you want to go slightly smaller with winter tires, not bigger, so the tires aren't rubbing on the packed snow.
