Just use my chart I posted, and compare to your truck's current setup.....
EDIT: If the 8" wheel has what you say is a 4.3" backspacing - then the distance the wheel will move outward is between these two listings from my chart:
8" wide wheel w/ 4.00" Backspacing (-12 offset) - meaning 4.00" outboard. (aka - 1.50" further "out" than stock
as well as being .50" inward less than stock)
8" wide wheel w/ 4.50" Backspacing (0 offset) - meaning 3.50" outboard. (aka - 1.00" further "out" than stock
as well as being the same distance inward as stock)
Using round numbers - I would plan on the new wheel sitting 1.25" further out than where the factory wheel currently is.
As far as how the tire will sit - it will be centered on the overall wheel. So, with a 265/70/16 tire the overall width is 10.40" - meaning the tire will stick out about 1.2" past the new 8" wheel at it's widest point (give or take).
(Overall Tire Width - Overall Wheel Width) ÷ 2 = Tire 'Overhang' per side
