The 275/45/20 should work.... Desault has proven you can go to an even more extreme :p

Here's the Comparison between the stock 265/50/20 and the 275/45/20....


BRAND GOODYEAR RSA
SIZE 265/50/20
RIM WIDTH RANGE 7.5-9.5"
MEAS. RIM WIDTH 8.5"

another note... the 305/50/20 will not work... way too big, especially at the 50 profile

This is good news then! If in fact all of these tire sizes will fit, the selection of available tires will increase... :)
