Since the rear rim is only 0.5 Inch wider and will accept a 225/40 should i change to a sqaure set of 225/40 all round?
recommend going with a tire and wheel set-- the cost of mounts and balances will cover the cost of the rims within 2.5 years. going with 17s will cut the cost even more

runflat mount and balances run about 120-140, twice a year.

plus you wont subject your factory rims/tires to mount dismount damage, potholes, and sand/salt
