Help with tire size!

So I have run into a little issue. My Girlfriend has got a flat tire and it is not repairable. We located some used snow tires from a friend. They are 235/50/17. As you know the stock size is 225/50/17. Is it ok if the 2 back tires are a little bit larger for a short time? Will they even fit without issue? I know the speedo would be off a little bit but again this is a short time remedy till winter is over.

I'm worried about any possible rubbing or anything. You think I should be fine?

235/50/17 vs. 235/50/18 is a whole different ball of wax.
Really, a ball of wax that is 1" bigger.
