wheels to fit winter tyres

I am thinking of buying some wheels and winter tyre to prepare for the winter ... checked the manual which suggest fitting 17 inch 7.5J wheels with et 42. Checked online and find it really hard to get wheels with et 42 for cheap.
Anyone have any experience and know whether fitting et 40 instead cause any problem??

I don't think your wheel 2 mm more outward will be any problem. ET 40 is fine.
