I believe you can fit a 33" with no lift. and 35" with a front leveling kit, hopefully someone can corroborate that

275/65R20's will fit with no lift. They end up being 34" tall and 11" wide.

They say the only size that will fit is what I have now.

My rims are 9 inches wide. My truck also sets about 4 or 5 inches lower in the front than the back. The only time they rub is when it's raining and I turn all the way I can hear them squealing against the leaf springs. They don't rub the bumper or the wheel well. The only reason that they might not work is if your wheels have negative backspacing and they stick out. My rims are +10 offset so they set even with the fender.
