Question Looking for a simple answer about tires

OK OK I know there are about 1000 different threads about tires and sizes and I have looked all over the forum for an answer to my question, but to no avail, so I'll just come out and ask it. I have a 2004 6.0 4x4 Harley edition. I want to know... can I stuff a 305/65/R18 under it, if not what is recommended? I purchased the truck in October 07, and got deployed over seas two weeks later so I havenít been around to modify it at all, its completely stock, to include the custom Harley wheels.

yes they will fit just fine. You wont have any issues with rubbing or anything if that is what you are asking. I have 305 /70 16s on mine right now and they look great and basically the same size but in a 16.

my bad I should have been more clear

I put the tires on after the leveling kit, but I think they would be a tight fit without it. They do rub on the leaf spring at full lock though
