8.8 axle rim size issue

Am in the middle of an axle upgrade and have 15x10 rims I'm going to use. Those rims and tires arent here yet and won't be for a bit. Went to put stock 15x7 rims with tires on to move the jeep and the rims rub the calipers on the ford 8.8 axle.

Does anyone know if the 15x10 rims will clear? The issue is the reinforcement ridge just ever so slightly rubs the caliper...

I'd imagine they would fit with the proper spacer (and thus proper backspacing on your new wheels).
