67 camaro tire sizes for 17's

im putting 17's on my 67 camaro RS and im trying to figure out the sizing of tires. i bought 17x8 with 4.5 bs front rims and 17x9 5" bs rear rims. i was thinking of using 235/45/17 in the front and 275/40/17 in the rear?

I have 245/45/zr17's on the front of the same size rims on mine and they rub under hard cornering.

I have the exact same wheel & tire sizes on my 67 and they fit perfect with no rubbing on hotchkis springs. I forget the back spacing on my wheels, but that sounds right.
