15" rims on 3/4 ton axle

Hi i picked up a set of 15" 8 lug rims for my 89' f250 with a dana 44 front end and they dont clear my front caliper which i was concerned with before i even bought them but my question is whether or not there are any modifications you can do to make them fit...ive heard of shaving down the brake caliper but i still dont think that would give me enough clearance...the rims came off of a chevy 3/4 ton also if that helps...but im just looking to see what i can do to make them fit because i hate the 16.5" wheels and also its so much easier and cheaper to get tires for the 15" rims so any input would be great thanks

Your best bet would be to get 15" wheels.
