    Does anyone have 305/70r16's? I'm considering moving to this size. A little info on my truck:
    1. Icon reservoir extended travel coilovers
    2. Icon 2.0 rear reservoir shocks
    3. Dakar leaf pack
    4. Camburg UCA's
    5. Timbren bump stops
    6. 285/75R16 BFG A/T

    If you have this size could you post a photo. Also, how much trimming was required? Thanks TW!

    You'll need to chop your cab mounts at the very least. They're definitely gonna rub but the wider footprint is nice in soft sand.

    Thanks mjp2! I've already had the cab mount done to fit my 285's. I got the 285's before and they never rubbed (which was weird cause they did on my 07) but then I had it done in case I wanted to move to a larger tire.

    im running 35s (305) on my single cab.. here is an idea of what they would look like with a LT kit and fiberglasss (keep in mind they are worn down quite a bit).


    only thing you might want to do is trim the lower part of the plastic fender where the mudflap would mount in the front.

    only thing i would watch with stock fenders is when the front is compressed and trying to turn, you might rip off the flare someway. i dont know if itll happen but when i was in my truck, i was rubbing at turn with 265s with tires being fully stuffed.

    A 305/70/17 or 305/75/16 is not a 35.
