Trouble? In what way? They'll fit but 225/50 is a closer match in overall diameter. The 215/45 is about an 1-1/2" shorter so your gearing will change quite a bit as in a higher cruising RPM etc.

The stock 215/60 -16 is about 26" in diameter so stick to that equivalent unless you are trying to change the gearing with the tire and wheel upgrade.

Check the sticky at the top of the forum. Lots of information there and most of the tires and sizes listed are stock equivalents as far as diameter is concerned.

235/50/17 is a hair taller-almost exact. 26.?" Only thing is they're about $20 more than the size above or below it-odd.
