My M5 brakes fit under 15in rims. Mine are shaved a little on the top of the caliper in order to have enough clearance for 15in wheels. My shop did it for me, they did many of them so far. Just don't forget to recoat or paint the suface of the caliper after doing the modification or else the caliper will rust. I do not have any problems with them at all, even after several autocrosses. They have been on my car for about a year now.

Good Luck

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.
