Sounds like an average deal to me. Worth the money, but nothing to write home about. You better check them real good for I.D. #s and names, especially on the inside of the tire on the rim. JB

4 inch backspace is not very much. How much room do you have now between the tire and the frame? JB

I have this size and backspacing on the rims I have now. If I were to do it over I would get 5" backspacing.

My 295's rub the outer lip and since they are not rolled up, the lip cuts into the tire. Band-aid solution= air shocks pumped up so the body doesn't come down when going through dips or bouncing over a wavy piece of roadway.

There is plenty of room for a 5" backspace rim.

Don't expect to be thrilled about how a 205/70r14 looks on the front. Personally I would pass unless they are real Centerlines. You could buy a full set of new 15" knockoff Summit "Autodrags" for the asking price & get the correct backspacing that you want. You really don't want to use those 14" fronts with that small of a tire though, just some advice from someone that's tried.
