Increasing sidewall height, will they fit?

I usually install slightly larger tires on my vehicles. I live in NYC where the roads are not friendly to low performance tires. I have other Benz's which I do the same to, a S320 on 235-55-17, and E on 215-60-16. My slk is currently not on the road, so I can not confirm by driving. I know that the car, if equiped with 17" are 225-45-17/ 245-40-17. For my E class I have laying around a set of 225-50-17/ 245-45-17. They are larger by 0.44"/0.48" radius compared to 17" SLK.
Has anyone installed the same? I do not think this increase is too much?
