215 is the tire tread width so a 225 is slightly wider. 60 tells you the sidewall height is 60% of the tread width and 15 is the rim diameter. So, a 215/60/15 is the same rim size as a 225/65/15 and slightly narrower and shorter than the 225/65/15.

R-15 =the size of the rim. or 15 Inches tall. The tire could be wider but not taller than 15 inches. If you want a taller size of tire, you need to swamp the rim size.
