Mickey thompson wheels don't fit

Its finally nice out enough that I tried to fit up the MT 16x10 wheels on my 05 F250. And guess what, they didn't fit. The bolt pattern was correct but they won't clear my brake calipers. The guy I bought them off of said they where on his f250, so wtf?
Any suggestions?
Can I get different calipers, is it worth it?

They fit his more then likely because his was probably a 99 - 04 where they had smaller brakes. You probably will not be able to space them out enough to get them to fit. Sucks I know.
