Rim/Tyre Dilemma

I have a 29" wheelset I want to put on my Genesis Longitude, but I'm not sure if I'll need to re-rim them.
Currently, they are Hope Pro2 Evo/Sapim Race/H+ Archetypes.
I'm looking at using these for communting duties with a 2.0 or 2.2 tyre - Big Apple or similar.
@ 17.5mm internal width will this result in death, or worse :D . Or would I be better off rebuilding on a wider rim.
Also, will I need to remove the spacer for the 11-28 road cassette when fitting a Shimano CS-HG50-10 / 11-36
Thanks
