Question Disc brake rotor width?

I have put disc brakes on the front of my 33 Plymouth Convert. This is a combination of a standard dropped tube axle for the Plymouth retaining the parallel front leaf springs and early Ford spindles. To fit the spindles I used Volare front rotors but these space the front wheels out about another 1/2 - 3/4 inch per side. Is there another rotar that I could use to bring the wheels in? I cannot change wheel backspacing as I am using new Wheel Vintques street rod wires, but I do have a lot of room to move the wheel closer to the rotor and brake caliper.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Highway

I don't think you'll be able to accomplish what you need this way. Most rotors have a fairly similar spacing, for bearing location in relationship to the wheel centerline.
