Not a good idea at all! The speedo will be out, but that's the least of your worries. It will become harder to accelerate and will make the transmission and engine work harder. You will have reduced braking efficiency and more rapid wear as the brake system was not designed to deal with the higher mechanical advantage of a taller tire. The vehicle will not handle as well, besides having a taller sidewall and center of gravity, the suspensions scrub radius will change and it will make it feel twitchy to drive. Your gas mileage will suffer as the engine and trans were not designed around this tire diameter. The larger tire will have a higher rolling resistance and weigh more as well.
If anything, for a snow tire, you really need a skinnier tire rather than a bigger one. Skinny tires bite the snow and ice better. If it were me, I would be looking for a 215 65 16 Same ride hieght and slightly narrower tread.

Well I would say yes if it is the new body style and 4x4.Even 2WD you may have to turn up the torsion bars then get the front end aligned.The rims don't matter how tall just wide.I have 2002 4x4 1500 with that size,but not sure what was stock on mine.I also installed the after market torsion keys that will allow for up to 33"tires.Well hope this helps and good luck.
