Has anyone ever fit a 28x10x17 on an E82 135i?

Just as the title states, I'm wondering if anyone has been able to cram a 28x10x17 Hoosier slick in the rear of a 1 series. If so, what where the wheel specs? Any modification required?

I want to run this tire, as many 3 series guys do, but fear it won't fit in the back of the E82 chassis.

-----------------

According to my calculations, here is what I found out.

The equivalent of a 28x10x17 is a 255/55/17: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/hoo-18157

I am currently running a 275/40/17 MT ET Street radial on a 17x8.5" ET50 wheel. It fit, but required a fender roll. I am lowered on Eibach Pro-Kit springs (~1.5" drop). I also have a 17x9.5" ET54 wheel I could try. I could also try swapping in the stock rear springs to raise it up.

275/40/17 --> 255/55/17 aka 28x10x17: https://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=275&aspect=40&diameter=17&wheelwidth=8.5&offset=50&width2=255&aspect2=55&wheel_size=17&wheel_width=8-5&offset2=50

Hypothetically, I don't know if I'd be able to fit a 255/55/17 tire. Much taller, but seemingly a bit more narrow?

Here are some photos of E92/E90 running this tire, just to give an idea of what I'm looking to do. I know the E82 chassis has different offsets.
