E30 wheel upgrade

I am looking at a nice set a wheels and tires for my car. Sizes are 17x7 of course with a 4x100 bolt pattern. Question is, the offset is 40mm, will that work for me without having to use spacers. TIA

40mm is the wrong offset.
You need a 20mm offset.
If you buy those, you'll need 20mm spacers.
