Default 08 STi - 225/50/17?

I'm looking to get some snow tires for an 08 STi. I'm going with 17" wheels and 225/50/17 is the closest to the stock size of 245/40/18. It would be .4 inches taller. The other, more commonly used it seems, option would be 235/45/17, which is 1.2 inches shorter in diameter. This seems like a pretty big difference to me and I would prefer not to throw my speedometer off by that much. My question is if there is enough clearance from the suspension for that extra .4 inches?
