So chris King hub mavic rim and Pace RC30 fork.

The pics will explain the problem, hub and spokes are hitting the inside of the fork legs? Any ideas?

Get a better hub.

It's just wrong for the forks.
To wide a flange, to large a flange diameter combo I guess.

have seen this before, sometimes there is just an overlap of lack of clearance between parts, one option would be to rebuild the wheel radially with the spoke heads on the outside so that the rest of the spoke is on the inside of the hub, this would give the clearance

Radial to the inside is not the best idea.

i know, i don't like it either but it may solve the issue of the clearance.

Better than on the outside with small cartridge bearings as the pulling action on the outside of the flange can make the bearing loose in the hub.

I had a similar thing with a CK disk hub and On-One carbon fork, the lack of clearance was scary....
