Looking at the specs of a Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 RFT, it does not say it is an XL rated tire although the description says it is okay to use it for the 3 Series Coupe&autoYear=2010&autoModClar=Base Model&vehicleSearch=true

I just want to make sure I can use this tire for my winter set up with proper loading (89 is rated at 1,279 lbs)

Tires rated at 1279 lbs will still exceed the gross axle weight rating of the car so I cannot see any problems with using them on your car. Just be aware that 205/50R17 tires will fit well on 17X7.5" wheels but are too narrow for 17X8 wheels.
