Max Size 2wd Tire Question

Ok guys, I have tried searching for this but it seems I can not find what I am looking for. I am looking at getting a set of +18 offset 20x9 rims and was wondering if anyone knows what the max tire size I could run without scrubbing would be? I was thinking a 305/55/20 but it seems like it might be tight. Ohh yea the truck it would be going on is a 2wd 2010 F250. Thanks in advance for any insight you have to offer.

My truck is an 08 2wd. I do have a leveling kit on front and the tires are 285/70/17.
That translates to about a 32.5 to 33 inch tire.

Thank you for the additional information.

According to our fitment information, an 18x9 +18 mounted with 305/55-20 tires will sit about 1.75" to 2" further out when compared to where you factory set up sits now so you'll probably have some slight tire rub at full lock. A little trimming should easily stop this. If you want to avoid tire rub all together then tire size 285/55-20 is the way to go.

Ok so I think I have decided I am going to go with the 305/55r20 Nitto Dura Grappler. Does anyone have an experience with this tire? From the looks of the Nitto site it has a 60k mile treadwear warranty on it so it must not be too bad. Thanks in advance for any insight anyone can provide.
