I machined many of this calipers to work with 300 rotors. It is 8mm not 10.
Or you can use srad gen rotors as mentioned and 2mm spacers.
Steel centering bushing needs to come out regardless what you use.

In other words, they'd need to sit ~10mm lower in order for the brake pads to make full contact with the rotors.
