That's weird. I was told I would never be able to balance them so why would you put banded rims on the back of a RWD car?

It's an illegal and unsafe process

you get into an injury causing accident and the police investigate or insurance investigates, and you have an illegal and unsafe modification to a vital system

Sweet. Being that I won't be daily driving with them greatly reduces those chances.
