Question HBS 2" Level and 305/55R20?? I know, I know

I know I know, another 305/55R20. But I want to see pictures. Everyone says it won't fit and some say it will. But I want pictures of the guys who are running them.

I am running 20x8.5" Rockstars +10 offset apparently. I am installed a 2" strut spacer friday here on my days off to bring the front end up.

I want to run a wider tire compared to going up in height. I think it just makes it look bad

Here's a quick shot of the truck, opinions and thoughts welcome guys.

Thanks for the pictures DirtyD

I've also been looking at a sure fit: 295/60R20 (33.9x11.6)

Just wondering if anyone is running this setup (pictures) and what tires are available. Its a pretty uncommon size.

The 305/55 should fit. My rims on my 09 2wd big horn are a + 13 and I only had sway bar rub issue at full lock so the extra 3 mm should clear. Discount tire will mount then on the front and let you try them to check for rub. Mine did so I swapped to a 285/60 since that's what they had in the style tire I liked.

Thats exactly what I wanted to see, thanks man. I really appreciate it.
The grey/black was my next choice if I didn't find my white one.

Levelling kits going on today, hope she goes well. Will post pictures later
