Personally I would use a 225 and a 200.That's whats allways worked the best for me on this type of car.The rest looks like a good starting point.You may back off on the cross to 49%,you don't have alot of rear percentage.

We run a wide tire just like a late model thats why we dont run as much rear percent I like a little more cross in the car too

We ran them for half a season on a 3000lb.car.They worked ok,they just didn't last very long.Went back to multi leaf.
