Default 225/60/16 on 16x7 sized wheel?

Just found a nice set of winter tires (blizzak) in 225/60/16 size to mount on 6 spoke RS 16x7 wheel.

Is 225/60/16 sized tire "excessively" tall for 16x7 sized wheel?

The width is fine, no worries there. I've been running 225/50-16's on my WRX on my (pretty) 5-spoke 1st gen RS 7 inchers and my (impossible to keep clean 6 1/2" stockers.

If they truly 225/>>60<<, the larger diameter might be an issue, IMHO 'specially iif you're lowered atall.
