235/40r18 square on ET45 wheels??

I am ordering my Enkei RP03 wheels in 18x8 ET45. I am just making the important tire decision. I am looking at Continental DWS, or Nitto Motivo.

I have heard that the DWS is a great tire, just a soft sidewall. If I can use a 235/40 instead of a 225/40 the load rating increases quite a bit which should firm up the sidewall a bit.

Anyone know if it will fit without rubbing with 18x8 ET45 wheels??
Anyone have experience with the Nitto Motivo?

It is only the fronts that will be close. I have 225/40/ 18 all around with a similat offset and they easily clear the suspension and just clear the wheel well. As it would be only an increase of 5mm each side, it would probably work.
