What size tires with no lift?

I have 20" wheels with 305-50-20 and need a taller tire. What size tire are you running with no lift?
Thanks

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

Thanks,

I wish I could see the 275's on a truck to see how much fender gap there is... so who has a pic of their 20's on a non lifted truck?

The problem I am having is Discount Tire says the 275/65 will not fit because my truck is a 2001
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.
