Question regarding tire installation

I have purchased stock IS 250 rims for my IS 350 which are 17 inch. I am planning on using them for winter. Now I need to purchase winter tires but the tires i want they don't make it in the size of 245/45/17 but they do make the 225/45/17 and they also make 235/45/17. The tires I want are Continental Extreme Winter Contact. I was wonder if i can still install the 235/45/17 for the back and 225/45/17 fronts. Would that be ok?
