YW XB 14 x 6 rallys fit disc brakes?

Hi Picked up a 68 Chevy II yesterday, it has 3 YW & 1 XB 14 x 6 rallys on it... I looked them up http://www.chevellestuff.com/qd/rally_wheels.htm and they are for 67 Chevelle SS, 68-69 Chevelle with F70 tires or 70 Chevelle ( have to get the dates)..
Wondering if these will clear disc brakes?
thanks

Read the rim profile code on the rim - should be JK (drum) or JJ (disc).
JK will NOT clear disc
JJ WILL clear factory disc set-up

IIRC, the ealier XB wheels could have a JK (drum) profile rim - but the later YW should all have a JJ profile to clear disc.
GM phased out the XB and in the YW and went ot one (JJ) profile for use on all applications after 68/69 (dependant on rim) - so any date codes after then should be JJ types...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!
