Can I run 215/55R17 on my car

I have a set of ADR Design rims from 03 Nissan Altima that I just sold to pick up a 2008 Mazda 6. I really like the rims and I purchased a set of Michelin MXV4 tires last June that only have 5K on them. The set up is:

17" x 7" 5 x 114.3 40mm with 215/55R17.

From what I can tell the best fit would be a 215/50R17 tire, can I get away with a 55? I understand there speed vs speedo rating would be off a bit but would it effect anything else or would the tires rub?
