8.5 x 17 on rear of an E36 318.

I scored a killer deal on a set of M wheels. The guy I bought them from had them on a 325is. When I put them on my car they are rubbing on the inside side wall.

Has anyone here ran this dimension of wheel? I'm assuming I will need spacers of either 5 or 10 mm... anyone know?

The tires currently installed are Toyo Proxes4 255-40 R17. Should I pull these off in favor of 245-40 R17 as well as using a spacer?

Also, I don't know if he used spacers or not.. I havn't been able to talk to him again yet.
