Default And another tire question

Hi everyone,
I have been lurking a lot and trying to find the answer to a question. I was given 4 new winter tires (Nokian Hakkapeliitta)
215/60-16 and my wheels are currently 215/70-16 on a 2006 V6 FWD
And the obvious noob question is: can I put the new Nokian tires on? I know about the 6(ish)% difference, speedometer etc . I think i have a good general idea

I badly need new tires and being broke, i'd really like to use them Well, if only it doesn't break anything on the car.
I plan to use them only one winter and won't come close to driving 5000km.

Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Sure but you will be lowering the truck almost an inch so be careful going over speed bumps. And the speedo will be off 4-5mph on the highway.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
