Use to one of the tire size comparison sites. I use http://www.powerdog.com/tiresize.cgi

If you are changing wheels, I use https://www.wheel-size.com/ to compare statistics of wheels. They also have a comprehensive tire/wheel fitment page https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/



In your case, those 70 series tires are 3.9% bigger. The 225s are 1.9% bigger.

With the '06's RTAWD system, you need the same diameter F&R or you risk overheating your rear differential. Also, a bigger tire could change the angle of your driveshaft (propshaft) and possibly cause vibrations from the u-joints...

So if I stay with the 215 65r16 it doesn't matter if I get an all-terrain tire?

Sure, that is OK. A slightly bigger tire (if used as a set of 4) is OK, just don't got TOO big, and be aware of possible consequences.
