Yes, what WPG-RAM said is basically correct. The need for 1/4" wheel spacers is related to the width of the tire, not the height. The stock wheels have a +19 offset. Because of that you cannot clear a wider tire than a 285 without hitting the upper A-arm. 1/4" spacers will give you more clearance on the inside to clear the wider tire.

The 295, yeah touch and go, but how the 305's fit with no issues is beyond me.

I know man, definitely blows my mind. It's weird how these trucks/parts can be built that much different to allow that.

I would definitely put them on the back as well. The front already sticks out a half inch further than the front stock so now you'd be at 3/4" difference. Looks a little funny IMO.
