Typically at the same strength, steel doesn't need to be as thick as aluminum. And as a 20+ ASE certified auto tech I can say that steel wheels are not as thick as alloy wheels. So it would stand to reason, assuming that the steelies use the same tire diameter, that there would probably be more brake clearance than with an alloy wheel. If I had to guess, maybe a 1/4" total.
