Got rims for the winter and need advice on it's clearance with the M brakes

I need your advice, I bought these used replica rims. And I need to know if I have enough clearance between the inner rim wall and the brakes.

Here's a picture of the rims:

Here's a video of the clearance I get with the inner wall of the rims against the brakes:

My question is, from the thin notebook in the video, I have about 1-2mm of clearance. These rims will be used in the winter, is that enough clearance or would it cause me issues with the snow and ice that may accumulate?

Additional info:
I have a F32 with the M Brakes, the rims I got are 18x8 JJ ET 35.
To test the clearance, I switched out the front tire only because the brakes at the front are larger than the back, and if they clear the front then the back should be fine:
(Brake Size) Front: 14.6" / Rear: 13.6'
