what pads? what wheels and what calipers do you have? first of all. just a suggestion but either they were installed wrong or you bought the wrong pads

i cant understand this, if the caliper fits back on properly with new pad fitted, i cant see how it would change the size the caliper was with old pads. best bet is to try get a hold of a standard wheel and see does that fit, maybe wheels you have a wrong fitment for the altezza

It can happen the new pads are thicker so it shoving the caliper out, I think who ever bought the wheels first didnt know this because the pads where low

hahaha...I never knew that the pads could adjust the calipers further out!!

I guess the cheapest way, is to get a 5mm spacer for the fronts, so that you can stick with the wheels.
A lot of peeps go this route to clear calipers. Also, so they can poke there wheels out to the fender as well ;)
