255/35/18 vs 225/50/17 means that the latter is 0.9" or 3.6% taller than the former. This will fit with no issues (assuming stock height) and will increase ride comfort and decrease the chance of bending a wheel. On a side note, IMO it looks better and gives your car a lowered appearance while increasing ground clearance. That's a win-win-win-win by my count.

Oh--and a narrower, higher profile tire on a smaller wheel will be cheaper, so that's another benefit.
