Well, the ones you linked to definitely don't fit since they have to wrong bolt pattern. JK bolt pattern is 5x5 (some places list it as 5-127).
The 15" steel wheel fitment seems to on a case by case basis. Seems like the tolerances for some of the steel wheel manufacturers fluctuate quite a bit. Some folks have reported caliper contact with certain wheels while others have reported zero clearance issues with the same wheel mounted to the same type axle.
Just this week, I have seen two reports on this forum of people running the Summit Racing Soft 8s in 15" on a D30 without issue.
That being said, safest bet still seems to be aluminum. There are several wheels that are guaranteed to fit without issue.
