Default Will these wheels clear E60 M5 front brakes?

Hi all - my E61xi came with these wheels and the tires still have significant tread life left. I've had the E60M5 brake setup all ready to go, but assumed these wheels wouldn't clear in the front (I know I'll need the 20mm spacer in the rear).

Car's in the shop undergoing engine transplant, new VTT Stage 2's, and a ton of bolt-ons, and I'm trying to determine if what I have will work since the car's in the shop, half apart, etc... Unfortunately, new wheels are not in the current budget because of the understandable $$$ outlay for the other stuff.

Style 396, 18x8 ET34

Thanks in advance! Jeff

Yes,18's will clear, the m5 runs 18" as there winter wheels, but if you put m5 brakes on, the xi will have a higher offset.
