Default Tire replacement help

I have an 05 1500 quad SLT Plus, i am looking at some Dunlop Rover M/T Maxx Traction in a LT275/65 R 20 size which gives me a 34.2 inch total diameter.. stock is a Goodyear Wrangler H/P in a LT275/60 R 20 with a 33 inch total diameter.......my question is......am I goint to have to install a leveling kit for the Dunlop tires to fit or will i have no problems?

any help would be great

Great question! Do you have 4WD? The consensus seems to be you will be ok going up to a 35" tire on stock rims with 4WD. Have you heard good things about the Dunlop?

yes the truck is 4x4 and these tires will be going on the stock black spare steel wheels......i have 4 of them and the dunlops are winter rated.....as far as what i have heard about them.....well my Dunlop dealer swears by them....but my goodyear dealer said that they are crap and i should go with goodyear dura tracs......dunlops are about $50 cheaper ( in canada ) and are NOT made of a silicone based compound......the dunlop seems to be the more sturdy tire with a ten ply rating...i feel that the dunlop is a better tire
