I got a set of medium reach front brakes for my fixed-gear bike. It turns out they're just a very, very small amount too high when they're all the way at the bottom of the brackets. One of the pads rubs on the tire when I apply the brakes (except real soft braking).
Now I see that some of the little metal threads in the sidewall on one side are starting to become visible.
Any cheap/easy ways to deal with this? I thought if I could find a slightly narrower brake pad, that would take care of it. But I don't want to start buying different brake pads and installing them only to see no appreciable difference. I don't see any dimensions listed for brake pads on the internet, and I don't think I could eye a 2mm difference when shopping for brake pads.
The brake in question is a Shimano BR-650.
