Like faststang said you could put a spacer behind the wheel or If you have some weld thick washers you could try them also to get clearance you need. I done my that way, It works.

I've got 5" Pro Stars in the front and they were hitting on the caliper mounting bolts. I ground off most of the side of the bolt toward the wheel for clearance leaving just a thin portion of the hex for a wrench to grab.

Not exactly the same but on my 96 cobra the rear calipers were interfering with my weld pro stars. I dont like the look with wheel spacers so I used a flap wheel on 4" grinder to take down the calipers some on the outside and milled down the pad where the bleeder screw goes.

All in the name of a cool set of wheels.
