New Weather Stripping does not fit

A home owner from Cockeysville MD says:
The original weather stripping has the same profile and similar proportion, but the material is thinner and does not obstruct the door operation. Additionally, the new weather-stripping is so thick that is does not sit flush to the jam in certain locations. The new weather-stripping was tried in 2 different wood doors from two different manufactures with installations separated by 20 years

Take a look at our 58-056. Do you think you could use this for your door?
