Take that hankook and burn it. okay?
I never can tell if you're trolling Merc... 215/55/17 are 10mm thinner in width than 225/45/17.

The bigger question is diameter (get that wrong and the DSC won't let you live it down). The 215s are 5% larger in diameter than the 225's. This is likely enough to cause the DSC to think there is a malfunction!

I wouldn't use these tires OP.
