99-03 4" Lift - 305/70R16 pics wanted

Anyone running a 4" lift with 305/70R16 tires? My early 99 is lifted now, and I'd like to stay with 33s but not sure how it looks. 35s are nice, but just don't have the gears to tow with them. any pictures of this setup are appreciated. I've got eagle alloy 16 x 8 they are going on. Thanks!

No one runs this tire size? Surprising.

They're only about 1/2" wider at the tread, and maybe 1" wider at the cross section than 285/75/16, and they're the same height. And with some tires you can't get load range E's but even so, weight rating drops as well.

If you have a 9" wide wheel, you might tell a difference in a 305 and 285 if you look really close, but that's it.

I've seen a few, but honestly, it's getting wide enough that they can look too short, especially on a lifted truck. 285's (or 305's) on my leveled Excursion look short to me.

I ran the 305's on stock 16x7 rims for years with no problems. Only minor rubbing at full lock.
