You will need front spacers to clear the struts. 8mm is the right width, but if you use 8mm spacers they will not have a hubcentric lip and the car will vibratate on the highway. Therefore you'd have to use 15mm (which is the minimum 4x100 spacer with a hubcentric lip), and run skinnier tires (205/40/17 stretched on). I'd use 15mm spacers all around just to even it out. And, you will have to roll the rear fenders to fit it all.

I know, a lot more difficult than it seemed.
