True. I noticed the clearance is about the thickness of a wheel weight, and made the same observation about the location of the wheel weights. Fortunately, the caliper only has a footprint of 2-3" wide. I wouldn't think that would make too much of a difference and you would need to advise the installer of your clearance issue and make sure they space the weights out is a way to miss the caliper.
