    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.

    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.

    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
    The equivalent of a 26x8.5x17 is a 225/55/17: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/mnh-mhr172

    These are my only bias-ply options. I'd like to stick with the 28" Hoosier because it's proven and has more sidewall to cushion the driveline.

    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" ET53 wheel I could try. I could also try swapping in the stock rear springs to raise it up.

    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?

    I ran a 275.40.17 on a 17x9.5

    also did a 275,40,18

    now its on a 15x8 slick

    tbh i don't see a 28 fitting.

    do a downgrade and run a 275.60.15. that's your best bet imho

    Thanks for the info!

    What is the setup in the picture? Exact wheel & tire specs?

    Stock suspension? Any fender work? Rubbing?

    Good to know. What brake setup did you go with to fit the 15s?

    I'm new to this conversion, so need a parts list, lol.
