Factory alloy wheels on J10

Has anybody had problems with the factory alloy wheels on a j10? I had steel wheels and just put the alloy wheels on but they seems extremely close to touching the brake caliper... Within 1/4" I'm hoping this is normal. Please let me know if anyone else has this problem

As far as I know, the factory wheels for a J10 would be steel wagon wheels. Alloy wheels were used on the Grand Wagoneers, but not on the Cherokees or J-trucks. Can you post a pic of the wheels in question?

That 1/4 of clearance is all you need. It's not like either the wheel or caliper is going to move in a way that they ever get any closer.

J10 brakes are the same as Waggies and Cherokees, so clearance would have been the same with either of them.

Now I'm not completely sure these are factory rims but that's what I've been told. So any help would be great!

I'm only aware of four different stock aluminum wheels, the slots from the 70s, the ten hole from the late 70s, the turbines from 88-91, and the 12 spoke from 80-87. Those look like none of them. There may have been other types (not a historian) but I've never seen that wheel on a FSJ.

I know the early XJs had those 10 spoke alloys but they were 5 lug obviously. And they were slightly different

Like I said, I was told they were factory but am not sure. I guess they aren't. Well thanks for letting me know!

They might have been factory on a Chevy/GMC, but never on a FSJ. All the FSJ alloy rims I've ever seen are a 15x7. That looks very close to one of the smaller Cherokee or maybe Comanche wheels, but those would be a 5 lug rim.

It's actually a 15x7.5" which I found quite odd

Hmmm...it's also possible they were a factory wheel for a Toyota, Nissan/Datsun or something along those lines.

You know, it's funny you say that because I just remembered the lug nut(only had 2) that came from it was a 12mm x 1.50 so you might be on to something! The guy at Endangered Species Jeep ordered those exact ones for me and questioned exactly what it was I was building. Obviously I had to order the lug nuts with 7/16 thread but still it was interesting...
