Switching out the 215 55 R15 tires for a set of 235 55 R17 tires

Probably. The 215 and 235 are millimeters, a 20mm difference, 25mm being one inch, 235mm being 9.25 inches, so after all that you are going to have a tire less than one inch wider. I don't see any harm in that

Whoa, hold on. You wrote two different things, on top it says 215 55 R17, I was reading the fine print you wrote 215 55 R15 to 235 55 R17, that is a much bigger wheel and tire..all bets are off ..however I think you have have just made a typo, as the '08 ES 350 Base comes with 215 55 R17~~~~~ 17 inch wheels stock

"Will a 235 55 R17 work on this car?' - that will work but 235- 50-17 would be closer.

Call goodyear, fitrestone, discount tire, ask them the biggest tire they recommend! Why call all 3 because you get a better estimate and not a sales pitch! If they contradict each other TELL THEM. This way you fine tune your response! Go with a professional they will guidelines based on their tire lines that they carry! I know this because in my younger days I sold tires i sold tires for a living! If my reply is useful? Please click my helpful button! Thank you, papa

They have guidelines custom for their tires! Sorry about syntax above! I sold tires for a living and we had booklets ( told you I was old) by every manufacture for the OEM tire and largest and smallest! Now they can look it up! Again if useful please click my helpful link!
