Kyle and Stacy Tucker are the owners and primary engineers of DSE. they built the arms, and they can tell you what will fit.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

When I orderedmy rims throught them they recommended I go a 235 or 245/45/17 with 4 7/8" BS on an 8" up front and 17/9.5" 5.5BS in the rear with a 275/40/17

To answer your question, that combo would 'work' but the ideal set up would be a 245/ front on an 8" wheel with a 4.875" backspace front, and a 9.5" wheel on the rear with a 275/ tire and 5.5" backspace.
