I had 305's on a 02 f250 without any problems and no lift. I think the wheels were eagle 589's and I believe the backspacing was 4.53" they stuck out past the fender about 2.5 inches.

I have an '03 F250, stock, with 35" BFG's on it (on the stock 16" wheels). I get some rubbing at full lock. Otherwise, they work great.
