The M3 arms add camber by pushing the bottom of the wheel out. Since the top of the strut is fixed, that means the top of the wheel is also pushed out which will make the rubbing worse. Camber plates add camber by moving the strut mounting location inboard, which will reduce rubbing.

The M3 arms do add NVH due to the stiffer bushings so for a DD I would suggest doing only camber plates, which will help with rubbing and handling without the downsides of the M3 arms.
