Question Question on tires

I have a 2003 svt focus now it says that the tire size all the way around is p215/45zr17 and thats what I have on the front, but when I went up to sacramento I seen that I had realy bad back tires and didnt want to drive 700 miles back on them but I didnt have to much money so I had to get some used ones and all they had were p215/50r17 that meens that they are more taller not wider. Now they run good on the road but my question is would they hert my time in the 1/4 mile?

these tires are on the back right? verdict is NO! wont hurt you a bit. they might slow you down a tad if they were on the front but only a tad.
