2001 z06 oem wheels with c6 z51 brakes grinding on the wheel

I have a 2001 c5 z06 that I am converting back to stock and I just purchased stock c5 z06 wheels that came from a 2001 and they are GM wheels not replicas. Now after mounting the front I tried to drive but the front break calipers are grinding with the wheels I drove half a tire length so half the wheel inside got scratched. I have c6 z51 brake rotors and pads with stock c5 z06 calipers. This is not my first brake job either.please help.

I believe you need 18in wheels in the front to fit C6 brakes....
