Tire Size

Hi, all. 

To update, it seems like I had a bad tire. I put the spare on and it all went away. I need four new tires now and I got them for free (almost new Goodyear Extra Grip Ice) but they're 215/65/16 instead of 215/55/16. That's less than an inch difference in  diameter if my math is right (10% of 215 mm is 21.5mm... 21.5mm is around 0.84 inches). 

I know this will cause my speedometer and odometer to read a little slow, but I'm wondering if it will fit under a stock suspension on a 2004 A6qA. C5 chassis. My research points to yes, but I would like the group's opinion. 

I would get the correct size, but beggars can't be choosers. 

Thanks in advance,
