Cool Advice on tire and size needed

I will be getting replacement tires for my ram with in the next 2-3 months...letting my crappy goodyear tires finish dissolving. I know this may have been brought up several different times already but I am having trouble getting the info I am looking for. I want to get the 305/55/R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers for my truck. I also want to keep my stock 20" rims for now. My truck is an 04 and from what I have read these tires should fit with out any modifications to the truck on my year. I read a different thread stating 03, 04, and 05 could fit these tires with out issue but anything newer would need spacers or adapters. Is this correct and is there anyone that has this setup on their Ram? Any help would be greatly appreciated as anyone who has made any kind of expensive purchase for their truck wants to make sure its not a waste of money.

Again Thank you!

I have not tried it myself but I have done a lot of reading on the topic and my understanding is just as you put it....305s should fit fine on a pre-2006 truck. The difference is that the pre-2006 trucks had torsion bar front suspensions and the 2006-up trucks switched to a coilover front suspension. My understanding is that the rubbing on the newer trucks usually involved the wider tire rubbing on the upper control arm. All that being said, I am sure someone that has actually done it will chime in.
