Smile possibe tubing out my 53 GMC

Good Morning, I recently purchased a 53 GMC long bed. I am debating on tubing it out, but would like to stay away from that if possible. My question is, what is the widest tire I can get under the wheel wells with out having to do any cutting? thanks everyone in advance.

I fit a 255/35/20 at first. Then I cut the bedsides and went to a 295/30/20.

black wheels are the 255s. chrome is 295.
