you'll want a larger rim, otherwise you're gonna have a decent amount of crowning around the rim. I would look for an 8.5-9 inch wheel.

Go with a 9" (width) rim.
You will need to quite a bit of trimming on the inner fender trim
You will also need a cab-mount chop if you want to remain "rub free". You'll need it regardless with 305's

i figured as much with the trimming. just wanted to make sure. so having 2" of tire pass the rim isnt good. why is this? that sucks cuz i just bought the rims the other week and im picking them up soon.
