Default tire size for 08 big horn

Hey guys, I have an 08 1500 Big Horn 4x4 Quad Cab. I have the stock 20" rims with 275/60r20's. What is this largest tire I can run with out leveling or lifting? The tire guys are saying to go 305/55r20's which is only about a 1/2" taller then my stock tires. It looks like I have lots of room to increase. I have read that the Big Horns have a heavier suspension set up, so do they ride higher than normal?

The Big Horn package is just appearance, no suspension difference. The 305's might have a slight rub, but they should work!

I've seen some 305/55X20's on stock setups. Only problem was a rub inside at full steering lock.

i just had mickey baja atz 305 55 20's installed on my truck today and i have a 2in leveling kit on my truck i would get the kit if you could swing it, about 400 installed with the alignment, i dont think the height is the issue, my tires are VERY close to touching my ball joints i could probally get away with it but im not going to risk it im going with 1/4" spacers
