TMoney is on a distinguished road

i would love to do that as that seems pretty simple (although extremely way more expensive), but that would not matter as i'd still have the same problem where it would hit the rim. the caliper is huge and it'* like nothing i've seen yet. i've gotten 20 diff. answers on what to do now so i'm hella confused. i got the 12 mm spacers, but the lugs naturally will not screw on with that amount of spacing. so I guess, question #1: Do I buy different size spacers?(takes nearly a month to ship keep in mind).

I've already begun to shave a little bit off, as I was told this would be okay. question #2: It is not going to hurt anything having shaved off a couple mm off of the outside metal of the brake?(It appears as if it'* pointlessly large)

I can take some pictures if it would help anyone help me. This is a pain in the ***, but it'll be worth it in the end, I love these wheels. I couple more mm to go and everything will be gravy. Be sure and let me know if I'm being a moron and not suppose to be shaving this despite previous statements. Thanks for the help all, all advice welcome!
