You seem to have the problem solved. I can only suggest smaller tiles
from Home Depot. The bigger the pieces, the more likely to crack.
I've read where hard core home bakers make racks to hold stones
vertically along the sides to further enhance the heat holding ability
of a home oven. For that application, I would think smaller tiles.
This looks like a crack waiting to happen, but..... who knows?:
