wider front tires, on 18x8.5 wheels?

So I am looking at a set of rims that are square 18X8.5, since the front wheel will be 0.5 wider than stock, should I put a wider tire on it or stick to 225/45? what would be the benefits of the wider tire and the negatives?

if its a square wheel setup does it make any sense to have the tire size staggered? like 225/45 front and 255/40 rear? Or should I go in-between 235/45 front and 255/40 rear.

The wheels I want only come in 8.5" otherwise I would go with 8" fronts like from the factory.
