It'll certainly fit, though 6.5" is towards the lower end of what tyre manufacturers typically recommend.

I've been running 225/60R16's on my 6.5" outback rims for some time.

Not sure I'll do it again - feels like the sidewalls do roll a bit more than 215's when cornering hard, but that could well be just the change in tyre brand/style, too.
