Check the archives. Someone is running M5 calipers under 15" rims, but they machined off a small portion of the caliper to do it.

Finally got around to installing my newly rebuilt M5 brake calipers. After everything was installed just perfectly, I installed the wheel and imediately felt a shudder. The brakes were rubbing the rims hard. Had to re-install my old calipers. Guess I better get tires for my throwing stars soon.
