no problem,the biggest you can put on a stock height 2000 f150 truck is a 285 which is about 32.8" tall and as far as width I am not sure but I am sure you will not rub with a little 9"

are you sure...305s???...I thought you got to cut the trim for 305s...I think 285s is the biggest.

285 = the width of the tire, not the height....285 is in milimeters, and the height is basically the overall tire size....the profile (ie: low profiel tires) is the "55" part, which is in incriments of 5 just about always....therefore, in my case on my tires its a 275/55 R20....and if u measure the tire its a 32.1" tire....sorry, just had to put that in the air, no offense...
