Sorry! I'd seen the Evo2 tyre quoted at 205/60 but thought it was a typo as a 50-profile more closely matches the rr of the GSR.
As Wreckleford says, 215/45R17s are actually slightly smaller than your standard wheel/tyre so the offset must be wrong. See if you can get some material skimmed off the inside face of the wheel to bring them in a bit. A good wheel shop will be able to tell you if this is possible with your wheel and get it done for you.
Another way to clear the arches is to add a bit more negative camber to the back, by rotating the elliptic bolts at the inner end of the lower arms. Also, some hammer work will releive the inner lip of the rear arches. I have done both on my Evo three and can now run 225 section tyres ok.
