305/70/17 Tires on Stock Wheels

I am considering putting 305/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 2005 stock height 250 with the 17" factory rims. Is anyone running this setup and could you post a pic if possible? Do you think these tires will fit on the truck without rubbing?

MSharpe505...tell me more about your truck...i have an 04 ext cab...the fx4 version. it comes stock with 285/70/16s...i know that i can fit 315s on there without rubbing...but that's cuz the fx4 has those rancho shocks that keep the truck sitting a little higher than others...i would say you could probably shove those 305s on there without rubbing. you want a definitive answer tho...i'd call a local ford dealership and ask them what the biggest tire you could do based on your truck setup...

I would look into a leveling kit though

Why do you recommend a leveling kit?

It just looks better. And gives a little more clearance in the front if you off road at all.

Theres enough stock though
