You can, but I wouldn't. The proposed tire is an inch smaller in diameter, so the speedometer will be off by a little, and that isn't really a problem. The real problem is that the proposed tire has a narrower tread by about three-quarters of an inch. Not only does that affect acceleration, it affects braking. It's a safety issue.
