the issue will be rubbing on the rear. Narrow rear fenders on the early cars.. 225 will likely be too large and rub (assuming you don't have flares). Can you fit your fingers between the fender and the tire currently with the 205 on the rear?

The usual caveats apply:
1) Ride height
2) alignment (negative camber)
3) tire size (not all tires are the same size despite the same number. Some 225's are a bit wider, some a bit narrower)
4) Rims being used.. and therefore factory offset or other?
5) spring/torsion bar rate
etc etc.
