Don't continue using the existing setup because you'll damage the tires causing a blowout.
The best, though not the least expensive solution is to find a longer reach brake, or possibly a drop bolt for your existing brake which will lower the range by 5mm or so.
I doubt you'll find shoes with enough difference in thickness, but you can use a coarse file to shave some off the top edges of the current shoes. Otherwise, if you don't need too much extra drop you can use a rat-tail file to extend the slots in the calipers by a few millimeters.
