Non staggered ARC-8 17x9 Concave Wheel on E90 LCI

Hey folks,

I've just traded my E90 330d 2008 with a 2010 E90 LCI 320d. I'm thinking to change my 17inch OEM wheels to Apex ARC-8 17x9 ET30 Wheel for front and rear (non staggered). I liked these ones because they have a nice concave design and I like the anthracite color too (my ride is space grau)

For sure I am not looking for staggered wheels, neither to increase to anything above 17inch, why? Because roads in my country are very bad and also I want to be able to rotate wheels and tires.

Do you think these ARC-8 17x9 ET30 will fit without problems for both front and rear? Current OEM wheels are 17x8 ET34.

Many thanks in advance for your responses!!

Mmm well actually my suspension is factory I currently run with 225/45/R17. So with factory suspension those would not fit?

For an LCI e90, the 17x9.0" ET30 ARC-8 can work with a 245/40/17 street tire with stock suspension, it would just look better with the car lowered since the tire is a bit short compared to OEM wheels.
