Give me your opinion (Pics)

Ok I bought some wheels for my project and when I bought them the guy I bought them from said they would fit over disc brakes. When I got them the wheels that were supposed to go on the front would not fit over my calipers ( four piston by the way ) but the rear wheels would. Front tires are shorter than the rear and not as wide and the wheels are more narrow as well. I decided to try and switch the rear tires to the front wheels and install them on the rear. I have drum brakes on the rear so I dont have to worry about the back spacing. My concern is that the tires on the rear now look to me like they might be sticking out too far ( back spacing not right I guess) Take a look and tell me what you think. I also have a pic of one of my rally wheel tires installed to compare you can tell it does not stick out as much. Just want opinions. Thanks

Can't you run a thin spacer in the front to allow the wheel to clear the caliper?
