Default S7 alloys fit the d3 s8?

My d3 alloys are in need of a refurb due to paint flaking but I'm not adverse to changing them, would oem 20 inch s7 alloys fit OK? Both are 9j width and 5x112 but the et is slightly different, the s8 is et48 I beleive where the ones I'm looking at are et33, which means they will stick out a further 15mm? Photo of the alloys below.

Yep, will stick out 15mm, this should be fine.
But I also think centre bore on S7 will be 66.1 mm and D3 is 57.1mm so if that's the case you will need spigot rings.

Thanks for that, yeah never thought about the centre bore being different, will spigot rings make them stick out even more?

No they will just narrow down the centre hole in the wheel for a snug fit to the smaller hub.
