Default 1993 1.8 mirage possible rim issue

so i just got this 1993 mirage and well it seems there is a problem with one of the rims. on the front there is one alloy rim and one steelie. the steelie almost seems like it does not fit right. I jacked up the car to investigate a little bit more and i found out like the rim will move slightly before the brake will. It doesnt seem to be tight against the hub assembly. has anyone heard of anything like this? would you guys think the fix would be find an another alloy rim somewhere?

When I bought my 95 mirage it had only one rim so I put on what ever 4X100 lug rims I could find in my backyard. They fit but like what you are describing was happening. The rims I put on were from a mazda 323. NO DICE! The rims have to sit flush on to the hub. Sorry but I think you have to find a new rim or better yet a whole set. hope that helped.
