While someone with an 9.5 ET 45 would be sticking out 75.65mm? So my setup SHOULD fit better, no??
The calculation you wrote isn't what really determines if the tire will rub. The offset is much more important than the wheel width - unless you are using a really stretched tire. Generally its the shoulder of the tire that is most likely to rub depending on the tire width and wheel offset. The 235/40 on the rear should be fine though. Hopefully you won't have any more issues.
