305's or 315's Leveling Kit

Got an 03 with Leveling kit looking into new rubbers. Not quite decided if i want to get 305s or 315s (if theyll even fit.) Just looking for pics or solid opinions on what size you guys are runnin on with a Leveling kit.

Youve left out some info. Thats just width of a tire.....aspect ratio plus your rim diameter will tell you how tall.
305/25.4 is your width
multiply that by the next number so if it was 70, then multiply by .70 (dont forget the decimal in front. That number will give you sidewall height.
multiply that by 2 and then add rim diameter....
A truck i was looking at had 325.60.20s on it leveled. thats a 35. 13. 20

Also no trimming, slight rub full lock on leaf, but only when articulating

Not bad to install took about 2hrs by myself with mainly hand tools, my compressor sucks so I got fed up with waiting on it. Extra hands would have been nice.

Custom diesel was awesome to deal with, usps did a number on the box loosing 1 washer, c.d offered to overnight me one I also have their egr delete kit.

Drivers side leaf rub full lock left, so rear of leaf, but only every so often like bumps and what not.
