Tires for my Harley

Its about time for me to get some new tires but I have a couple questions for you guys. I have cooper 305 50 20's on there right now(came with the truck) but they rub the sway bar in the front and a little on the fender in the rear. So I'm thinking about going with something a little smaller. I don't want to break the bank with these things either as this truck is my DD. What do most of you guys run with the stock rims, and recommend? I tried searching but only came up with stuff about the lightnings. So anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

After searching a little more, I've found a lot of guys run 295 40 20's. Would that be my best bet?

Stock size is 275/45R20 but you can get away with 295/40R20 if you don't have it dropped too much.

If the rub is a problem, I would personally go back to the stock size(45 series). I know it is a probably a personaly preference, but I like the highest aspect ratio possible for ride quality.
