Default bigger tires?

Hi guys I was just wondering how big of a tire could I fit on my truck ?
I have a 2007 dodge ram 1500 4x4 it has a 2.5 inch leveling kit on it right now. I have 275/60/20 AT tires and rims on my truck right now they are pretty new. I can afford to put new tires on it right now but eventually i want to put a set of mudders on there. I was looking on line and the size and iam having trouble finding out what size I can fit.
I guess i could fit is a 33 inch? I dont want them to be huge.

33's and 35's are the height of the tires, they are measured differently, LT or (light truck tires) are most commonly measured in inches

I guess i should reword my questions. my problem is that most times when you guy buy a tire is says 275/something/something. How does 33 covert into 2/whatever/whatever. For example, if i wanted 33 inch tires would I look up 295/60/20?

295/60/20 is nearly a 35 inch tire. close. most tire manufacturer's as well as site's like tire rack.com list all the specs for you, width, height/diameter, rim size, etc. just check them out.
