Are Slightly Larger Tires an Option?

    So, I'm looking for winter tires and have come across some very gently used tires that are a slightly larger OD (235/50-19) than the the standard 245/45-19. Standard tire OD is 27.7", whereas these would be 28.3" or about a 2% difference in diameter and speedo readings. Does anyone know if these will work fine, or will I run the risk of the tire rubbing somewhere?
