I just don't want the flush look to the body.

Are those wheels +12mm / +24mm or are they -12mm / -24mm offset?
How far out will the flares stick?

He is running 20x9 inch wheel with +1 offset not 20x10.
So comparing the wheels, if they had the same offset (lets say +1) the 20x10" wheel will stick out 1/2" further than the 20x9" wheel. The +1 is just that, +1mm offset from the center of the wheel.

Just since -12mm was mentioned in this post ill run with that. In comparison if you run the same flares (as doughboy) and a 20x10 -12mm offset wheel your wheel will stick out 26mm further than they do on his truck. If you go with the -24mm add 12mm to that so they will stick out 38mm further than his.
If they are +12/24 then the 20x10 +12mm wheel will stick out 2mm further than his do and the 20x10 +24 will actually retract by 10mm (so his would stick out 10mm further than yours).
Hope that helps some.
