"V"brakes don't seem to fit

I have put new rims on my bike Sun Ryno Lites XL's and the V brakes seem to have not enough room for them. The brakes arms are on about a 25 degree andle to clear the rims, can I get thinner brake pads, or just don't worry about it.

Change the spacer configuration on your current pads - move the thick set to the out side and the thin to the inside.
