another size question

So I want to put new tires on my truck, 2013 F350, CC, Lariat, 6.7 powerstroke, snow plow prep, 3.55 gears. Current tires are 275/65/20 Michelins that came stock. Truck is used to tow a gooseneck all year (aprox15000lbs), and plow in the winter. I want a nice over-sized aggressive looking tire, but don't want to do any leveling or lifting cause i don't know much about it, and worried it will wear out the truck faster, and will mess up the height of my plow mount. I have the upgraded 20" chrome clad cast aluminum rims, and would rather not replace them. I really like the 325/60/20 duratracs, but i don't know if it will fit on my truck without doing a lift or level. Other then my stock size, these are the only size the duratracs come in. Also looking at the Mickey thompson baja atz p3's in 35/12.5/20. I am pretty sure the baja's will fit my truck stock, but I like the duratracs more because they are a winter rated tire, and are proven to last forever and handle towing easily. Anyone know if the duratracs will fit??
Thanks, and sorry to ask another tire question, I,ve been searching for a couple days to figure this out.

Ps- I realize duratracs come in the same size as my factory tires, but really want to go a little bigger.

What size new tire would you want to use?? Toyo MT or Nitto Trails would be great due to the higher load rating and sidewall plys.

I like the 35/12.5/20 because I'm pretty sure they will fit. I was going to buy the toyos, everywhere I call they are on back order. I like the duratracs best but not sure if the 325s will fit?

I was just at the dealer the other day and there was a new F-350 with 325/60/20 Duratracs on it, so yes they fit with apparently no rub. I will be putting these on my new truck when I pick it up on Monday ! The duratracs also come in the stock 275 size as well as a 305 so if you want the hight of the tire without the bigger width go with the 275. If you want the width as well go with the 305 or 325.

PM me your email and I will send you a Pic of the 325's on a stock truck.
