Couple of months ago, I bought 4 tires at Costco and saved almost $100 over the best price I could find on the internet or at discount tire places. You can shop Costco on the web for a price and call the local store for pick up and installation.

Your closest Costco is in St. Cloud. Actually Waite Park but that is close enough to St. Cloud.

At least is was a Costco last time I was there.

I am thinking of putting in a level kit also and I was going to go with the 305's. I did some reading and they should fit without rubbing (if you believe everything you read). I have a friend in Fla. with 305's on a stock F-250 and no level kit. They don't rub at all. Good luck.

I'd say a minimum of 8" wheels for 305's, thay are 12" wide(section width). They are probably around 35" tall too.
