They'll look a lot larger as the sidewall will bulge more as well as the profile being 5mm taller.
It'll work but you'll want to watch out for your archlining if your wheels are spaced out as the bulging will most probably rub.

I'm assuming the wheels are 6J wide?

Its not 5mm stampers. the sidewall is a percentage of the width so those will actually be 19.5mm taller and obviously 20mm wider.
