4" Front Rims

I live in NY but was wondering about the law. Is a 4" rim legal or people just say dont use it for the road cuz it will handle like the Titanic? I bought a set of rims and the guy said they were 6" but were really 4". I got them but i think they look sick on the car so i want to keep them.
