Isn't this as simple as the new brakes moved the wheel out and that is all there is go it? I don't think this is rocket science, the new hub or spindle or what ever you put on moved the wheel mounting out further widening the track.

Either you go back to the brakes you had or you change the tires and/or wheels. I don't think there is much to think about here.
