However I do see "305/70/17 Load "E" O/D 33.8" - Is this the same but smaller?

And what does Load E and O/D mean?
305/70/17 So this tire is 305 millimeters wide and the 70 means the sidewall height is 70% of 305mm and it fits a 17” rim. O/D is overall diameter I believe, so that tire would almost be a 34.

I would love to roll some 35’s but I was told that they are pretty hard on the front end of the truck. Is this true? I am pretty much have my mind set on some BFG’s. Is there a significant difference between the 305/65/17 and the 285/70/17? Is it worth the extra money to invest in the 305’s?

I am rocking 2004 XLT 4x4 Screw – 2” leveling kit!

You'll be fine running 35s on these trucks. Most poeple say that the problems start when you go over 38s and start running 40s.

I have a 2004 FX4 S crew with a 2" level that is close to needing new tires.

I want to get a wheel and tire package for around $1,300.00. Right now it has stock 18" but I want to go smaller rims because of tire prices. I can't find any 16" rims that are 6 on 135. So I think I have settled on 17".

The problem I am having is that I know what I want it to look like, just don't know what to buy and don't want to be disapointed with the look or lack of fit. I have saved up a long time...like 3 years.

I want to have the tires poke out the fender well at least 2"

What I am looking at are Pro Comp 1069 rims they are backspaced 4.75 and have a -6mm offset 17" high 9" wide.

Tires are Pro Comp XTerrain All Terrain 305/65's These will give me a footprint of 10-11 inches and a height of almost 32.6".

Will this give me what I am looking for?

you can't buy rims in 16" for the 6x135 bolt pattern, won't fix because of the brakes

Step down to the 60 series and you'll be ok.
I dont understand why you say this will rub bad on his.
did you not say in the post that with a level and 9 inch wide with 4.5-5.5 backspacing you can run 35x12.50 isn't that what he is asking.
