The 60 is the wall height of the tire, if you change that you change the outside diameter of the tire. You'll be able to do it but you'll increase the margin of error on the speedometer for a start.

You don't want to do that.
The misread won't be bad (maybe a few %), it will just show you going slightly faster. If you're not prone to excessive speed, it won't matter.
