Angry Tight Rotors? Brake Shoes 300e

I am replacing the rotors, pads, parking brake shoes on my 90 300E I used ATE 24.0109-0118.1 rotors and Bilstein 2100 parking brake set. When I try to put the rotors on, they are very tight to the shoes. Have loosened the cable and the sho ends are to their minimum with adjuster in shortest and cable end of shoes as closed as possible. Cable is loose and moves freely from adjuster nut above driveshaft.
Could it be that my rotors are wrong size or shoes wrong? I have double checked the parts against the old ones and seem to be ok??
Frustrated!!!! HELP.
