Have a Nice Day? Beretta winter wheels, grinding caliper?

I got my flamesuit on, so feel free to unleash the Kraken.

I'm wondering if it will be safe to grind off a little bit of the caliper for clearance?

Cliff's: I'm running summer tires on my rpf1s, which are no longer going to cut it in the snowy/slushy world I live in right now.

I have no money for new wheels right now, and probably not for another 2 months.

Now here's the issue, the caliper very, very slightly rubs on the inside of the wheel. Its very slight, I've taken pictures of both the wheel and the caliper. It's worse under braking than regular driving (I drove it for less than 1/4 mile before removing).

Would I run into any issues if I ran a grinder of it to skim off a little metal in the areas its rubbing? I have Brembos for summer to show off behind my RPF1s. If I can make this work until summer I'll invest in some 17" winter wheels for next season..
