Default tire size question

Long story short.. giving old tire to friend who has caravan.. his runs 215/65/16 and ours are 225/60/16.

According to tire calculator..it says it'* smaller all around??? I thought 225 would be wider then 215 but it tells me otherwise .. I know that it will be close regarding diameter.. speed reading will be off a bit.
Never mind.. it didn't show width.. please delete mods

I don't follow what you are saying? Our tires are wider, I think? The Caravans tires are TALLER, right? But not wider? Maybe I am missing something.....

Our tires are wider.. and yes the caravan'* tires stock is a tad taller.. but when I saw that reading I pulled up above.. I thought it was smaller all around including width.. but after I posted.. I realised it didn't show anything bout width
