Who sold them to you? What made you think they would fit?

Can you not get them changed?

Only other options that occur to me - will rolling the front arches help?

Will a smaller front tyre - eg 225 or 235 help? You can use the ones you take off on the back in due course, or try and flog them if they are not too badly damaged.

Sorry for your problems...
