ET47 offset on 8" wheels for 328 xDrive

This puts the wheel slightly closer to the brakes. I've been running 8Jx17 ET40 wheels for a while and they're fine, but am in need of new rims as the ones I have are beyond repair.

I found a set of 8Jx17 ET47 (E46 wheels) for a good deal, but I won't lie that I'm a little concerned about the 7mm shift inward. does anyone have any experience if thesewill work right out of the box without hitting the calipers, or do I absolutely need spacers? Not a big deal if I do, but I want to just have them ready right away instead of waiting for them to ship. (also, any recommendations for a 10mm spacer? Previous threads seem to be sparse in details)

I did search, but didn't find any clear information what the absolute limits are for various wheel sizes.
