156 Option 17" Multispoke wheel Clearance?

Hi guys,

Set of shiny refurbed 17" option multispokes ready to go onto the car soon.
They are this model (originally white - offset is 43.5, greater than the silver version which use 40.5)

Has anyone had these wheels fitted?

Current 16 x6.5 ET40.5 (I think) standard teledials with 205 55 16s: about 10mm clearance: some evidence of rubbing here as the tyres move around I guess.

Trial fit of the 17x7 ET 43.5 Multispokes with 215 45 17 tyres: Less than 2mm

Is this cutting it to fine? I feel that this is a bit too close for comfort despite these being official Alfa wheels with the correct tyre size. I was for this reason considering some 15mm hubcentric spacers to give me more space and a wider track, but wonder if this is pointless?
As far as I can tell - outer clearance should be 1mm less than GTA 17x7.5 wheels, so should not be an issue.

You'd probably get away with the 15mm spacers.

I've ran mine on GTV V6 wheels 7.5Jx17 ET30.5 with 225/45/17 and Team Dynamics 8Jx17 ET35 225/45/17 with no trouble.
