argh! e46 17x7.5j don't fit E91 330i

Well, that was an interesting hour wasted... I bought a set of BMW alloys with winter tyres off ebay that someone had been using on their E90 320d. They're 17", original BMW, and I thought they'd fit.

They don't. They don't clear the brakes on my 330i E91. This is rather annoying!

Fronts are 205/50R17s on BMW 17x7.5 wheels
Rears are 225/45R17s on BMW 17x7.5 wheels

Managed to get the rears swapped over then started on the front. Of course after making a small adaptor for the jacking points that BMW helpfully give us...

Looks like I need another set of alloys that will fit these tyres. Any suggestions?
