the 295/70/17 is basically the same height as the 285/75/17. The 305 is only 10mm wider and approx. 1/16"-1/8" taller. If the 285's fit then the others should fit also.

realtree250 your wheel is to narrow to run a 13" wide tire correctly. I aint saying it cant be done but if it was me, I wouldnt. You would have to run to low of air pressure to get a good flat contact patch. Fuel economy would suffer. A 9" wheel would be much better. I am in the same situation wanting wider tires but I have to get wheels because I have the 17x7.5 and it sucks. I wouldnt consider anything wider than a 285 on those wheels.

If you run a wide tire on a narrow wheel and lower the air pressure, the sidewalls will build up too much heat and could prematurally fail.
