10mm spacing at all?

I currently run 20mm hubcentric spacers on my 20" 405M ET47 rears.. this gives me a nice flush setup as my sidewalls are pretty flat.

Thing is the new wheels I'm looking at only come in 8.5 ET35, that's the equivalent of using a 12mm spacer on the stock 405M's so it won't be flush.

I have read one or two posts about being unable to run 10mm hubcentric spacers in the rear but nobody fully explains what causes the issue.

Is there any modding I can do to the hub to accept the 10mm spacer? It's a deal breaker for me as I'm finally set on a dream wheel design but they can only offer ET35 and I'd rather avoid having wheels sucked too far in
