Question Wheels wouldnt fit need help

I recently installed a toytec 3 inch and was going to buy wheels n tires off of tirepackage.com. So one of my friends told me he had a set of 33 12.50 x 15 bfg mud terrains on black rock crawler wheels he would sell me for 300 dollars. So i went down there the tires n wheels looked great so we put them all on and there was no rubbing at all. I get ready to run to the bank to get his money and my truck wouldnt move. After looking the truck over I found the the rims around the hubs was rubbing the break caliber. Well its back to ordering rims offline but i fear that if I get them the same thng will happen. I believe an 03 bolt pattern is 6 by 5.5. If I order that bolt pattern will these wheels clear the break caliber? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help guys

Well I thought about that too but heard they are extremely unsafe to run. I also didnt wanna throw money away on spacers for used wheels n tires. So ima get new wheels n tires just hope the rims i order will fit. I believe if i get the 6 5.5 with 3.75 backspacing i should be fine right?
