285 or 305's

Is a 305/70/16 to wide for a 16'' rim? I have a 00 with 7'' stock width rims and am wanting to add a set of 305 or 285 set of toyo m/t's. I just don't want to affect my towing ability. I will add a leveling kit also so if you have any pics. lets see them. Thanks

I have 285s on mine and they feel fine. still brake and corner the same. I was thinking about 305s for my next set though, so i'm interested in hearing from anyone running these on stock wheels. No cash for new wheels yet. seems like stock is too narrow though, but idk

285s should be fine. i think the 305s would be too wide and makes the tire look funny.

305's fit fine. I'm on my 3rd set and have worked them hard. I dont think they look funny at all. Jsut have to adjust tire pressure a bit more to get the right wear.

I run 305s

Yea, I run a 305/70/17 Nitto Dune Grappler. Doesn't look funny at all. Looks good. I'll try and post some pics later today.
But I don't tow very much.

what i mean by funny is that the rims are narrow and the tire flexes some to compensate that.

I had 305s on my '04 F350 and they wore fine. Only issue I had was rubbing at full turn. Running 285s now and don't have any rubbing.....

Yes I know, I have them on my truck right now. But they really should be on a 8" wide rim to get the true shape out of them. But my are ok on the stock rims but bulg a little at the rim.
