the way the face is machined & the back pad has a lot to do with how much clearance the wheel will have. it is because 3 piece wheels usually can be made in large lip configurations, the "pad height" is increased/decreased accordingly to maximize lip sizing.

I used to work for a forged wheel company and we did encounter problems with caliper clearance & fitments. Sorry to hear the OP is having problems ...... whether is ordered that way or not......we do not know.
