Downsizing for winter tire

Hi. I live in Toronto
I recently bought Honda accord 2019 ex-l.
I wanted to get winter tires so i went to local used tires shop. He offered me to downsizing for my winter tires with 205/55/16. He have me good deal and I get this set of 4 tires.

My original tire size is 225/50/17. I did some research after this purchase there is a 3.9% difference between total radius. I just noticed that it is a big difference. Can someone give me some advice so should i keep this winter tires or this whole business went wrong for me

215/55 or 225/55 would be much better fits. Looks like the seller is trying unload old stock.

I see plenty of choices in those two sizes.
