Confused with ET and Squared???

I got a 330i sport with OEM rims 18x8 et34 225/40R18 front 18x8.5 et37 255/35R18 rear all tires are Continental ExtremeContact DWS XL. I had to buy a new set of wheels due to a pot hole on the turnpike, the new wheels are the same size (18) but the front are et40 and the rear 18x9 et45. I have been searching all around the forum and Google but no real straight answer to the following: What is squared and is it better than staggerd? With the wheels I bought will I have issues with the rear? I would like to make my car look as aggressive as possible with the before mentioned set.
Please no flaming, thank you!

Why would you be flamed for this? lol. Square setup would be identical wheel offset/width all around. All of those wheels you listed above are staggered. If youre goona use those specs above youll be going the opposite of aggressive.
