Default will these tires fit?

Brother has a near new set of snow tires, 225/60/r16 already mounted on 5x100 steelies. Before I go pick them up (from another state) would these fit 05 wrx wagon or would I be wasting my time?

Thanks Luke, maybe you might know what the overall tire diameter is with 225/60 r16 vs 205/55/r16.
