I think you may want to consider going 235/40/17's all around.

What size rims are you mounting them on? BTW. All tires are not exactly the same in width. For example. A 225/45/17 Yoko is comparable to a 235/40/17 Kumho. Just an example. Tirerack.com has it all in their spec sheets. Check it out. If you're using an 8" rim, then yes, 235/40/17 is my recommendation. Fairly close sizing though..
