2000 RL Tire Question

First I am new so apologize if this type of question has been answered before.

I have a Acura 2000 RL 3.5. The tire standard size is 215/R60/16.

Want I want to know is it ok to put on 225/R60/16 for summer tires ? And if so is it ok to use the standard tire size 215/R60/16 for winter tires. I have the winter tires but need summer tires and found a real good buy for 225/R60/16.

I know the speedometer will be off slightly ( a bit slow ) and the diameter difference is around 1.8 but if the only real difference is the speedometer then I am ok with it.

Please advise if you think its not a problem and if it is what do I have to be concern with.

Should be fine. I had 225/55 on my factory wheels on my 02 and 215/60 on my snow rims, car drove fine. You will fine good to go with these sizes.
