Default 2011 1500 stock

the stock tires I have now are p275-60-r20. I want to use the stock 20"rim but use a wider more aggressive tread. Some one told me go with 33" 12.5, but i have no idea how translated that to tires. Need help. I went to firestone and i left them scratching there heads in confusion. So want I want is to leave the truck alone and add bigger/ wider tires, if possible... Thanks!

285/65/20 fits stock, but looks crammed in the wheel well. 305/55/20 will rub. You may be able to fit a 305/50/20 but that is going to a shorter tire which I don't think would look that great.
Use a tire calculator found on google to see different size comparisons, but here is a basic run through on what you are looking at. 33x12.50 is 33 inches tall (what you have now) but 12.5 inches wide. Most 305/55/20's are very similar to this size. They may be 12.5 inches wide but a tad over 33 inches tall.
So a 305/50/20 would be shorter, more like a 32 inch tall tire.
Then say a 285/65/20, it is a bit wider but quite a bit taller.
Then there are some sizes in between. You can find them listed on tire companies sites. I would say you shouldn't go wider than a 285 stock though...not leaving many options. Goodyear Duratrac 285/60/20 is a sweet looking tire that may fit, a bit wider, and is way more aggressive.
Good luck!
