    When I fitted Speedline Alesio 2's on my old MK2 Astra Belmont SRi I hit the same problem.

    In the end I cut back the drive shaft why the required amount. Make sure you do this with the hub nut on the drive shaft, then clean up the end of the threads and use the hub nut to re-cut the threads by working it back and forth around the cut area. Once it moves freely then you can remove the hub nut.

    You don't have to remove the drive shaft from the hub to do this.
