Default 225/50/17 on 2008 WRX

i might know the answer for this but i just want to be sure. i can found a set of good deal of snow tires 225/50/17.

i know the stock size is 205/50/17

i did Tire Size Comparison and shows follow

Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference
205/50-17 4.0in 12.5in 25.1in 78.8in 804 0.0%
225/50-17 4.4in 12.9in 25.9in 81.2in 780 3.1%

is 3.1% too much? will i run into problems?
