I see the ARC-8 offered in only the following widths and offsets:
  1. 17x8.5" 40ET
  2. 17x9.0" 42ET
  3. 17x9.0" 30ET Concave
  4. 17x9.5" 35ET Concave

Would I need a 5mm plate with #1 or #3 to get to the proper offset of 35mm for a pre-LCI E91?
I would get #3 and run 245 or 255 square. If you are not tracking 245 square is easy worry-free fit, no camber plates or spacers required. You will add more grip in front and can rotate wheels also. I have 9.5 square with 255 with camber plates and 5mm spacers in front on my pre-lci 330i. You can get PS2 tires which are also lighter by around 2 lbs than other brands according to Tirerack. This will help reduce unsprung weight even further. You will have an awesome light-weight set-up.
