I am building up my cross bike, and trying to find a brakeset for the front fork, the current set of tektro's, the pads hit the fork and do not open very far so it will be hard to get a wider tire on. Can i put thinner pads, or what is a better set? The fork is a Performance carbon fork

Just be cheap, and deflate your tire.

I found an older pair of shimano cantilever brakes, and put some newer pads on them, these work far better than the newer style tektros

Pull the straddle cable off one end, and use shorter brake pads,
saw off any length of brake shoe that goes back in side of fork blades.
It's OK the Pro's mechanics use hacksaws.
