Question wider tires on stock 16" diameter?

I've been considering new wheels for my 07 LX to replace the steelies and covers. I'd use my stock tires until they're worn out and then maybe go wider... if they'd fit. A 225/50-16 is almost identical in revs/mile to the stock 205/55-16. Would those be enough wider to have problems with rubbing?

215-50/16 would be 1.7% off size while 225-50/16 is only 0.1% off.
