Bolt on wire wheels

I have an opportunity to buy a nice set of 14'' bolt on wire wheels, 4 x 108.
What are the significant numbers I need to look for to be sure they will be ok for an Alpine?
Thanks

4 bolt 4.25 spacing as I see it. WHAT specifics does the seller provide?

The maximum backspace for 14x6 wheels/ tires ON THE FRONT of a series Alpine is about 4-1/2 inches.

14x6 ET24 wheels should have a backspace of about 4-1/2.

Series Alpines are dimensionally variable, so ..... you might need a thin spacer at the front. Back should be OK.

After some pushing finally got a backspace measurement of 41/2 inches. Think the wheels may be a go.
Thanks
