cragar soft 8 brake caliper clearance?

has any one ever heard of a 15" cragar soft 8 not being able to fit around the brake calipers of an 04 WJ Limited? Some crappy salesman scared me about it right before i was about to order them off the internet.

If they don't fit, it won't be by much, and take your grinder to it. Problem solved.

I had to grind the edges of my calipers on the front, maybe a 1/16" or less material.

Yeah I knew the dude at the 4 wheel store was retarded or something. Damn near every WJ has the 15" soft 8's, he just went in there with his little tape measure and was convinced they wouldnt fit. He then of course tried selling my some stuff that looked like it belonged on an escalade and i politely declined with a "that would be retarded". thanks guys.
