Did you use a c clamp to push the brake piston back when you were removing the old ones? If you don't push it back the new rotor will be too thick to fit.

Did you buy standard luv rotors?

If they're close to fitting, you can take your rotors back to oreilleys and get them turned and that'll take a little off. It's not a bad idea anyway. I've bought new rotors before that were a little off.

or - just spitballing here - take the pads to the disk sander for a sec and remove a bit of the cheaper material instead.
