Would Hoosier full slick 28x10x17 fit without issue.
Hi would a 28x10x17 full slick hoosier fit e82 135 without modifying the rear fender or anything.

I seriously doubt it. Thats like nearly 3" taller than the stock tires. BMW doesn't normally have that kind of fender gap.

Thanks for the info

That 335 appears to have negative camber to allow for fender clearance.

It might fit, but without measuring or testing I'd be foolish to say it definitely will over the web.

Bumping this because I'm curious as well...

Anyone ever tried on a 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.ph...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?
