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.

Would changing to 335 hubs help I know the 135 is pushed out more right
That would help wheel selection, but I'm more curious if the actual physical dimensions of the 28x10 would physically fit underneath within the wheel well - considering they have a 12" section width.

It helps offset, but I don't think it would ultimately help other than off the shelf selection for wheels... You will either rub the fender or the fuel filler tube.
