Default Bfgoodrich all terrains which size?

Have had my truck for two weeks absolutely love it except for the junk tires it came with. Fine for street, terrible off road. I have always loved my bfs on my beater truck. Looking for some input on which size to get. I do not want any rubbing and will be driving in snow so nothing too wide. I have the 20 stock rims here are the sizes need help with this guys.
Thanks Nate

Sizes
275/65/20
285/55/20d
285/65/20
305/55/20 I imagine the rest will rub

Just as info...

Stock is 275/60/20 (I believe) here's a comparative...
275/65/20 = 33" Tall 10.8" Wide
275/65/20 = 34.1" Tall 10.8" Wide
285/55/20 = 32.4" Tall 11.2" Wide
285/65/20 = 34.6" Tall 11.2" Wide
305/55/20 = 33.2" Tall 12" Wide

And not mentioned (a few manufacturers offer this size)...
285/60/20 = 33.5" Tall 11.2" Wide

And I'm not positive, but 305's on stock wheels might rub without other mods like spacers or a level kit. Hope that helps...

Thanks for the advice I think I will go with the 275/65/20 seems to be the closest to ours. Thanks again.

The Ford guys tend to put the 285/65 on their 20s and it looks pretty damn good. Google the tire size for plenty of photos.

Superduty pickups have the 275/65/20 stock on them...really good mix of sidewall and tread width!

I just put the BFG TA KO 285/65/20's on my 2011. Wanted a tall tire. They are a very good tire but spendy. Not sure how the fit would be without a level though. My truck is levelled.

Thanks guys and I should just do a level kit but I want to wait for that. I like my truck exactly the way it is right now just want a little bit of tread for the trails. I will probably just end up ordering one and seeing if it will fit without any rubbing shipping something back is just always a pain in the a$$.
