Default Wrong wheels?

Just bought some cragar d wing style rims over the phone from jegs. Lady said they were for a 4x4. Got them today and the packaging says 2wd? Ran the part number and sure enough muscle cars and 2wd trucks are listed. Except blazer. They have a listing for s10 s15, but not specified. I slapped one on and looked to see how it measures to the ones already on it and im not seeing anything different in the front wheels. Are these for a 4x4 in the wrong package?

the offset is likely wrong
they will likely clear the brakes but the tires will likely stick out of the fenders and may have clearance issues

Stock backspacing is 6" for 4X4.
