Default 305/40's on 22x9.5in rims on 3/5 drop????

I know that combo will fit in the front but will it fit the rear? The belltech flip kit has it sitting pretty low. I'd like to add that meatier combo for better ride quality. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

Forgot to mention this is my current combo, 265/35's. It leaves too much wheel gap in front for my taste.

My truck is lowered 3/5 with 305/40's. Wheels are 23x10 and rear wheels have +30mm offset. The rear tires rubbed on the fenders when the truck flexed a lot. Other than that they're good at the current setup.

Why does it look lower in the rear?

My driveway is at a slant down and that throws the pic off. But the front drop struts are set at stock height with 3in springs. The back is just the belltech flip kit but not sure if its 5in or 5.5in drop.

The truck is sitting just right! Quick question though, how many spacers do you need on the front drop struts to reach the stock level? Also if the drop struts are at stock level does that mean that your camber bolts are no longer maxed out? My drop struts are at 3 in drop and the camber bolt is maxed out and don't want to drill cut into the frame.

Are you using the factory shackles or the ones that came with the Belltech kit?

I don't think they're going to clear your fenders.
My last truck had the same size wheels and tires and they stuck out. I'm pretty sure you have a different offset, but that may cause the tires rub on the inside on the front end suspension. Here's what mine looked like before a 2/2 drop. You can still see that the tires stick out farther than the wheel face.

There's a 285, that comes as a stock size on an Escalade that you might look at. It'll keep the tire more flush with the face of the wheel and give you a little extra sidewall.

Man I dont even remember how many rings i used. It's what ever Belltech stated that it had to be at for stock height. I think it was the 3 one inch rings only since if I added the 2 half inch rings that would have put me at 1+ inch over stock height. And sorry but i really dont know much about where the camber bolts need to be. I'm always doing it wrong the 1st time around, lol.

At this point I'm using factory shackles cuz I wanted to level the truck. In my previous pics I had been using the one inch "lift" shackles that came with the flip kit.
