Can anyone help with tire sizes...

Ok well im gettin 20's soon and sometime after that I want to put some offroad tires on those 20's (as well as a little lift).

Can anyone tell me what these tire sizes mean.....I dont know anything about tires....

LT 285/55R20/D
LT 325/60R20/D

What I need to know is about how big are those tires and about how much of a lift would I have to put on my '00 XL to fit those....

Any help would be appreciated.....

with a 20" rim, i dont think you can get enough backspacing to clear the width of a 285, to keep it from rubbing. much less a 325
