Default 235/50/17 on 2007 Lexus es 350?

Was wanting something a little wider next time I get tires. Looks like the 235/50s match up to the oe 215/55s pretty well, but wonder if they might rub. Anybody tried this?

225/55R17 is the biggest I know for sure will work but the 235/50R17 you would like to use is about 0.4" shorter and 0.4" wider. So I suspect it might work but really no way to know for sure unless you can find someone here on the forum that has tried it.
