Yes, what matters is the 559 which is the rim/tire diameter and determines which tires fit which rims.

There's plenty of latitude about the width on any given rim, and those two are close enough to be considered interchangeable. You can find more info if you search "bicycle tire and rim widths" or a similar phrase.

One caveat. The wheel won't be an issue, but it's possible, though not likely, that there may be frame/fork clearance limitations that the wider tire exceeds.
