Default Wheel spacers

Not sure where to put this, so here it lies...

I have my set of '95 Torque stars sitting around with a fairly new set of great all weather tires on them. My Fiance'* car (2001 Auora 4.0) has a set of tires that are about end of life. I tried bolting one up and found the clearence between the rim and caliper were just too close for compfort. The wheel doesn't hit i, but it would be tricky to get even a sheey of paper between them. What I need is a shim or spacer I can use to get the rim out a hair farther so it doesn't hit. Unfortuently, the SSEi rims are only 16" and the Aurora'* are 17" so the tires can't be swapped. Anyone seen something to help me out with tis?

Just make sure the wheel studs are long enough.
Being passed by your tire is not a good thing.
