Need Quick Help Please!!

Hi - I had a 2001 XLT 4WD that I recently sold three weeks ago. It was a stock truck. I was running 15x7 Mickey Thompson Sidebiters with 31/10.5/15 Pro Comp Mud Terrains. I took them off before selling the truck to sell seperately. After selling them locally today..the kid called me and said they would not fit his 2003 FX4 Ranger. He said the wheel had a lip on the back that was hitting his brake calipers and not allowing the wheel to turn. Has anyone experienced this? I wasn't looking forward to returning his money but if it came down to it, i definitely would. I tried looking this problem up and it did say that almost every 15" wheel would fit a ranger with the right bolt pattern, which mine was. I'm really frustrated by this and need some help!! What should I tell him to do? Is there something he can do that is inexpensive to the point that he could enjoy this setup on his truck?? Thanks for all the help!!

Ya, Kinda what I was thinking. I was a little thrown back when he told me they wouldn't fit. Started doing my own research and found out today that they put a bigger brake setup on some 03's. I didn't know that at all.

Then I wouldn't even respond to him anymore. He will eventually give up.
