Default Taller Tires on 17" Wheels

Does anybody have experience with putting a 225/50/17 tire on a 17" wheel? I'm asking because there are more deals on used snow-tires out there in this size then the 225/45/17 I would prefer. I used 205/55/17 last year and they worked great until I flatted one (and they're discontinued Dunlop M2's) so now I need to find a whole new set.

I don't really care about aesthetics as this will be my snow setup. I just don't want them to hit my struts or any other suspension components. anybody have any experience?
