17x4.5 welds Did not fit

Any one run into this issue I had a local shop order me my front welds and they rub on the front brembo brakes. A 1/4 inch spacer will not fix it I believe it needs at least a 1/2 spacer and longer wheels studs has anyone done this before? After researching I saw a lot of ppl are running 17x5 and will clear just fine problem is I trusted the shop and got tires installed to kinda hard to return them now...

Do you have the original factory brake pads with the roller skates? if so they need to be cut off for the welds to clear. Search or google there should be pics and how to do it its very easy.

Sorry just realized you said 17x4.5....I have 17x5 and had to cut off the roller skates on the pads and its still close so i could see where the 1/2 difference would have clearance issues.
