I am going to get camber plate and dial it into -2.8 degrees. I will not have any issue with rubbing on the front or back correct? I have not seen in this thread if the LCI will rub in the back with this set up.

Thanks again!

Thanks for answering DallasBoosted! He is correct, you will need a 5mm spacer in order for the 17x9.5" ET35s to clear with an R-compound in 255/40/17 with -2.8 degrees of camber. However, the LCI e90 has a wider rear tract, and thus has 8mm less fender clearance, so the rears would rub without a fender roll, especially with the R-compound tires.

Thanks!
Here is the side profile shot of that same car:
