caliper change /upgrade

I could use some guidance. I been riding for about a yr. 2016 FUJI Altamira one.3 .It is primarily a 105 STI group except
for crankset ,wheels and rim brakes.They are Oval concepts 520(BB86 press fit),Vera Corsa DPM27 wheels and TEKTRO dual pivot alloy calipers.
,After 2000 miles in last 13 months ,I upgraded wheels to HED Jet + 40/60, Now ,the calipers feel a tight. they barely fit. Don't feel confident. My mechanic suggested I go o a Ultegra upgrade? the older models? but which one Is Asked .
Relax he said, your ok as is.set the TEKTRO for now. will look for used ones for you. I know he means well and experienced,but am the one riding.Yesterday before going out I checked and had to adjust for space. on rar tire.rubbing .
Please forgive my long post.
should I just buy the new 105 calipers? or go with Ultegra 6800?will they fit.
What about a new TEKTRO set with better reach?I was also told to look at SRAM and FSA
Any helpful comments or suggestions will be appreciated.
