Thats because they have about .8" taller side walls. While they would fit on your wheel, they are going to cause some issues...

Might have rubbing
Will mess up your speedometer, you will have a decent amount less revolutions/mile
Will soften up your handling with that much extra sidewall

Try a tire calculator to see the differences that tire causes
