Those specific ones from your link won't work. Those are the wrong bolt pattern altogether.

You will need a 5x4.5 setup.

This should help...

Pick your poison:

7" wide wheel w/ 4.50" Backspacing (+12 offset) - meaning 2.50" outboard. (Stock)
8" wide wheel w/ 3.25" Backspacing (-32 offset) - meaning 4.75" outboard. (aka - 2.25" further "out" than stock as well as being 1.25" inward less than stock)
8" wide wheel w/ 3.75" Backspacing (-19 offset) - meaning 4.25" outboard. (aka - 1.75" further "out" than stock as well as being .75" inward less than stock)
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)
10" wide wheel w/ 3.75" Backspacing (-44 offset) - meaning 6.25" outboard. (aka - 3.75" further "out" than stock as well as being .75" inward less than stock)
10" wide wheel w/ 4.00" Backspacing (-38 offset) - meaning 6.00" outboard. (aka - 3.50" further "out" than stock as well as being .50" inward less than stock)
10" wide wheel w/ 4.50" Backspacing (-25 offset) - meaning 5.50" outboard. (aka - 3.00" further "out" than stock as well as being the same distance inward as stock)

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
