Default 02 SSEi Tire Size Question

Got my car today. I am getting tires tomorrow. Stock Size it 235/55/17. I would like to go with a wider tire, such as a 255/50/17. The tire is approx 3/4" wider. Everything else is pretty much the same. Will there be any clearance issues if I go with that tire?

I have heard that 255s tend to rub.
