Question Confused about Winter Tires... Help

Ben has advised us that 18x8 wheels all around should be fine while my TireRack advisor is saying 18x8 for the front and an 18x9 rear. But the tire size is the same; 235/40R18!!! My understanding is different wheel sizes is only to maintain the staggered setup. Are the different wheel sizes needed to clear the rear rotors? Will the 235/40R18 tires fit the 18x9 rear wheels? or Do I need different tires for the 18x9? Can someone clarify? Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks
