99-04 16x10 offset help

I'm wanting to put 16x10 wheels with 305/70/16 tires on my truck. There's about 4 different wheels I like but they all have different offsets. They are 24 25 32 38 and I think I saw one over 40. How will the offset change the look between all those. Thanks.

The only thing the offset affects is how far out the tires sit. the higher the offset the more they will stick out. a 16x10 rim is a 16x10 rim no matter what its how far the mating surface is in relation to the outside of the rim

So a -38 will stick out further than a -24?

Yes a -38mm offset will stick out farther. But then you run the extra risk of rubbing on leafs. -24mm seems to be the perfect number. But it doesn't throw your tires way out there, maybe around 2 inches.

The lower (smaller) the offset, the father it will stick out. A higher (bigger) offset brings the wheel closer to the engine.

So +40 is high (sucked way in), 0 is stock (99-04), and -40 is lower (sticking way out).
