im running 225s on 7.5J and they look normal (no stretch) so 235-245 would fit the back (8") although you could go down as far as 215 possibly with a stetched look but a tyre fitter will be able to tell you more

I just put 215 / 45 / 17's on and they fit perfect, no issues, so don't worry about it. I also have a 900 like you so i can guarentee they will fit.
