Rim question, quick help.. offset

Hey there, I am in need of some quick help, if that's possible on a forum.. haha. Im looking at a set of rims, and they have two options, one is a 20x9, and one is a 20x10, the 20x9 has an offset of 1, while the 20x10 have an offset of -43. Im wanting to wrap them in 37x12.5x20 Nitto Trail Grapplers.. which would be the better choice? Im not too up on offset.. If they stick out some thats ok, I'm looking at doing pocket flares also.. Please school me.. lol Also, im going to be running most likely a 6in radius drop arm lift... unless I can find a heck of a deal on a 4 link.

You definitely don't want the -43. Those would stick out like 5 inches!! The 1 offset will stick out about 3 inches more than the stock wheels.

Because the '99 to '04 SDs had a narrower front axle, so they could handle more negative offset.

Appreciate all the help, looks like I'll be ordering the 20x9's.. Once I can get the tires and suspension all in and on, I'll get her cleaned up and take some pics..Hopefully I'll be home then..
