It will look better because it will make the tires widen a bit. poke depends mainly on backspacing. the wider rim with the widened tires make it look like its stick out more but its really not

How far they stick out depends on backspacing.

Wider wheel will fill out a tires width better than a skinny wheel... That's kinda personal preference... Me personally, I would take a 16x10 over a 16x8's for the looks, though a 16x8 you can air down to a lower tire pressure with less risk of popping a bead.
