Anyone run 235-55-17's?

I need new tires and local ford dealer is selling some CHEAP. Anyone run this size? I run 255-50-17's all the way around with no problems, but these are a hair taller. I wouldn't think they would be a problem, but figured I would ask.

Less than a quarter of an inch bigger in diameter, depending on what wheel you are running, the most likely spot to watch out for would be the front upper ball joint as far as contact point.

Do you have 7 or 8 inch wide wheels? I think that width of tire is good for 7 inch wide wheels (it is what current Mustangs and Crown Vics with the 17 inch Sport wheels run).

I believe they are 7.5" wide wheels, and that was pretty much what I was thinking, but figured I would ask if anyone else had run them.
