Default 2004 Ram 4X4 Tire Fit Question????????

I have a 2004 Ram 1500 4X4 Off Road which is what it says so I assume that is a package of sorts. I have factory 20" wheels with street tires on them at this time. I am moving to Missouri from Louisiana and I need a MUD/ SNOW tire. My question is what is the biggest 20" tire I can put on this wheel? I saw a 04 Ram 1500 with 33X12.5X20's on the same wheels but it was a two wheel drive and I'm assuming that the front spindle and connecting parts are different being as I have a 4X4. The tires I have now are 275 I think 65 R20. the inside wall of my front tire only has about 1" of clearance between the tire and the what I would call the spindle. It's where the upper control arm and the spindle meet. I guess my question is will the 33X12.5X20 be to wide and rub at this point. If anyone has a 04 4X4 or any other year that has the torsion bar front suspension and 20' wheels what size tire do you have on yours. Please help I need this information fast.

At the risk of sounding stupid what are torsion keys? Is your friends truck a 4X4? I'm assuming it has torsion bars being as he used torsion keys. If his is a 4X4 then 12.5 won't rub and I should be OK.

u put torsion keys on your torsion bars to raise the front of your truck up instead of turning the two bolts on both sides of your torsion bar. it doesnt cause as much stress as turning up the bolts but you still have to put bigger shocks on your truck and get it realigned after installing the keys. yes his is 4x4. his tires do rub a little on the plastic of his fender well
