Default 13" rims to clear 1.8 brakes

Hi, i am looking to use some slick tyres on my 1.6 with 1.8 (255/10") brakes, anyone knows some kind of wheels that will clear calipers for sure?

I've run several sets of 13's that just needed the outside corner of the caliper radiused with a side grinder and a flap wheel a little.
