Front Disc Brakes calipers hit new rims 1967

Greetings all, I ran into some trouble today when I tried to change rims on my 67. I had a set of Centerline drag rims that came on the car when I bought it. I didn't particular care for them and ordered a new set of Crager SS to put on it. We did the whole measuring thing, got the back spacing correct, but the centerline rims had a recessed dish as well as the back spacing. This little dish of about 3/4" allowed the front disc brakes to clear. My new rims don't have the dish and don't work. What are my options? Can I get thinner calipers? I don't want to use spacers and longer studs. Don't tell me I am stuck with centerlines....

What size Cragers? 15's should work with the GM front disc brakes.

They are 15". I think the caliper is the issue. It looks too big. The numer on the caliper is 5455946 Delco Moraine. Does that mean anything to anyone?

It looks as if the 5455946 Delco moraines are the original calipers for this car. Is there anything out there that is 1/2 to 3/4" narrower on the hub side that will bolt on without having to change anything. I don't care if it is an aftermarket. Thanks
