454s and tire size

Looking for a tire size recommendation. 67 vert, stock suspension, fenders not rolled. Doing the Ultra 454 in a 17x7 and 17x8. The backspacing isn't perfect per Dodgestang, but I see many others running these wheels. 235/45-17 front and 245/45-17 rear?

235 might be a bit much on a x7 wheel 215 or 225 would probably work better

215-50-17 on a 7" wide rim would give you a height of about 25.5" and the 245-45-17 on a 8" wide rim would be at 25.7". That should work if you can find the tires you like in both those sizes. the 225-45-17 for the front at 25" tall. The 235mm wide tire on a 7" wide rim is the max width I would use and would be 25.3" tall using a 235-45-17
