Well you might be rubbing because the 235/40 tire is a lot taller than your winter tires. For your Summer tires get 245/35 or 255/35 (which has more choices) and you'll be fine and shouldnt rub.

Go with 225/45/17. Cant go wrong with either choice on the street, but 225 will give you the slightly wider look over the OEM 215 tire size.
