if your running 20s i think they make a 275 65 20 wich would squeeze in their with minimal rubbung, throw on a leveling kit and your set. and it will look like it should from new

while you are researching leveling kits, look into the "shake"they seem to cause while in 4wd.

don't plant that in his head! It's rare. and even if it does happen, it's barely noticeable except in extreme cases.

A leveling kit is a spacer that goes above your shock/strut assembly to raise the front end of the truck up. 2" or 2.5" are common choices.

or you can get an adjustable shock like rancho or bilstein that do the same thing (most prefer these)

you will be able to find a tire size that fits without having to level though. learn how the metric conversions work and know that stick around 33" tall and no wider than i think its a 285 (that's pushing it).

Have you tried using the BFG website www.bfgoodrichtires.com ?
Even if they don't have your exact size, there is a "contact" button where they will offer to help you find an alternative. Since Michelin makes both the BFG's and Uniroyal brands, I'm hoping they have something for your needs.

You're speaking of the spacers/blocks right?

I've had a level kit on many previous trucks and have never experienced this.
