will these 15x8" wheels fit with disc brakes?
 
I have a tj with rear disc brakes. I know that stock 15" aluminum wheels rub on the caliper.
will a 15x8" steel wheel with 4" backspacing fit with out rubbing the caliper?

They will most likely hit the caliper. Most steel wheels don't have an aggressive enough "X-factor" (curve of the back of the wheel), to accommodate much brake clearance. Steel wheels usually have less brake clearance than stock aluminum wheels.
