Default 295/60/20 on my 13' Ram Sport 20" Wheel?

Was wondering if I could do this without a rub, I have the HBS 2.5" lvl upfront and was wanting to go to an All-Terrain. I just had my Sport Wheels powdercoated black as a more cost effective way to have a nice set of wheels, now I'd like to add the tires.

Was wondering if 295/60/20 would fit without the rub or whats the biggest I can go?

those tires would be about 11.5 inches wide, and with the stock rims, should be fine.
some lads are running up to a 35x12.5 tire, with no rubbing, but sometimes they hit the upper arm as well. a wheel spacer can solve this if you dont want to switch rims. if at some point you decide with rims, then you can go with a negative offset, like -12mm, and that will push the tires out a bit. hope this helps

some tips for calculating tire sizes.
295 is the " width" of your tire in mm.
60 is the profile, more or less a percentage.
and of course 20 is the rim.

to know the width divide 295 by 25.4= 11.61 to be exact.

to know side wall heigth multiply 11.6 by .6 ( thats the 60 profile number). = 6.96 inches

to know overall tire heigth. take 20 (rim size) and then add the 6.96( sidewall) twice and this will give you a tire size of 33.92 or 34 inch tire
so your 295/60/20 equals a 34/11.6/20
