305/65R18 on Stock Rims

I've got a very balding set of stock 275/70R18's on my 07 CC with a 2.5" level kit.
Anyone have any experience with 305/65R18's on the stock Lariat 18" rims? Any rubbing?

In specific, does ANYone have a picture of 305/65R18's on their truck from straight ahead?
I'd like to see how much they widen the stance. And see if they stick out past the stock fenders (which is what I'm looking for).

Thanks!

I ended up spending the big bucks to get a set of 20x9 rims, wrapped in 35x12.5x20 tires. Fit no problem with my 2.5" level as long as I chained back my mudflaps.

I am just a lowly soldier with a pretty tight budget. The price difference between rubber for a 18" wheel and a 20" wheel is night and day ... a price difference which I cant afford. I bet it looks great though! See I honestly think my stockers look pretty nice! If I do go for another wheel, It will probably be a 17" Mickey Thompson Classic Lock. Theres also a chrome-to-paint ratio that I need to balance. The truck is that lighter blue color and it already has chrome mirrors, polished wheels, and chrome bumpers. Either all black or all chrome in my opinion.

I'm half and half'ing my chrome to black. Smoked my headlights. Black exhaust tip. Switched from standard three chrome bar grille to chrome and black billet grille. But also added chrome door handles. That way the chrome is more spread around the truck instead of all shoved up front.

As far as the tires go, I know my old stock 18x9 lariat rims are known to chew up sidewalls of oversize tires. So on stock rims, I'd probably stick with a 295 width. And no taller than 34.5" if you have a level. Just my opinion though. I had to do some mudflap modification to fit my 35's lol.
