I tried that before, it wouldn't work. It only needs 2-3mm more clearance without spacers on front's. So, it turns out it would work unless you use a massive spacer.
However, if you don't care the paint on your Brembo calipers, you would be fine running these wheels on streets since they rub just a little. BUT, it's better to be safe than sorry.

It doesn't matter if you drive on streets, just check the torque on each lug more often.
If you take the car to the track, I would recommend change to longer studs (search ARP studs) with open end lug nuts.
Again, it depends on your usage. I wouldn't too worry about it.

You can always change front rotors to smaller one, then you can put the rear's on front's.
