Fitting 15x 6 Series rims

I Need help understanding if there is a difference in backspacing between a disco & Defender. I Tried to put a 15x6 Series steel wheel set mounted with 33x10.5x15 Mud Terrains on my 94 D90 the other day. these came off my buddies 94 Disco 1. The rears mounted fine but the fronts rubbed on the calipers. Both the dico they came offof & My 90 have 3inch lifts.

Not sure of the offset, however the calipers are wider on the front of 90 compared with the Disco which does not have vented rotors, compacted by the rim only being 15x6 would cause it to be a little "cramped" in there. The narrower caliper on the Disco could make all the difference...
