Wheel Feedback Pls

I'm considering getting new fancy wheels for our 06 SLK280 :)

Due to the fact that we got the car a few months ago with new tires, I would like to stick with the 16" wheels (also like the comfort ride of the 16" wheels & Michelin tires combination) :tu:

OEM wheels front is 7 x 16 Offset 34 - 205/55x16 Tires
OEM wheels rear is 8 x 16 Offset 30 - 225/50x16 Tires

Wheels I'm looking into are 7.5 x 16 Offset 35 - Hub Bore 66.56

As per Wheel Offset Calculator - Current Wheels Specs compared to New Wheel Specs I have following results:
Front - Inner clearance 7 mm LESS (the inside of the wheel to the strut housing) & outer position EXTEND an extra 5 mm (position of the outside edge of the wheel)
Rear - Inner clearance 1 mm MORE (the inside of the wheel to the strut housing) & outer position RETRACT by 11 mm (position of the outside edge of the wheel)

I wonder if I'll run into any issues when I'll get this set of 7.5x16 wheels with the 35 offset? - Please advise F)

Thanks
