295/70/17 Tires

Hey, has anyone ever ran a 295/70/17 (33x11.5x17) tires on a completely stock 05-07 f250 fx4? I'm looking at getting some toyo MTs or nitto trail grapps in that size but am wondering if it will look okay on my truck. Granite I am sure they will look better than the stock 30s or 31s, whichever one they are. And last question do any of you have any experience with MPG running either one of these tires on a stock truck? I Mainly wanted to stay around 33 or 34 tire because i do not want to loose 2-3 mpg going to a 35. Thank you

2006 FX4 Crew cab F250
Bone stock right now

I'm running 295/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 2003 f-250. Factory height. They don't rub at all and I'm still getting 18 mpg highway. Here are some pics. 295/70/17 Tires-imageuploadedbyag-free1393088766.746568.jpg295/70/17 Tires-imageuploadedbyag-free1393088791.633142.jpg

I've looked around and most people are saying that it will fit with no rubbing. I'm looking to get the same size on my truck (05 F250 XLT). I'll let you know if they fit!

My 05 F-250 with the stock wheels has 305-70-17 with no lift & i haven't rubbed yet.
I bout the truck with them on it.
Just installed a 2.5" leveling kit. In April i,m going to get a new set of Good/Year dura track 295-70-17. That what I run on my 2000 F-350 with 2.5" leveling kit & what I run on my 05 Dodge 2500 with no leveling kit (till April).

I run 33's with no lift, no rubbing at all. As for the MPG's I'm not sure, its been bad with the winter, but I'd be able to compare it better when the weather gets nicer, as I put them on in October.
