To answer the original poster, you won't see very many 453s with wheels with lip because of the ET 44 offset.
That offset and wheel width determines the amount of lip.
Most lips will look like the front wheels of the picture I posted above.

Another issue related to this is available tire widths.
In a 23" diameter tire, a 205 and 215 (wide) tire are the only readily available sizes now.
These tires will mount on a 6-8 inch wide rim, 7" wide being optimal without looking 'stretched'.

See the comments here in my post here for 453 max fitment:
