The 295, yeah touch and go, but how the 305's fit with no issues is beyond me.

My bad, it should read 'wider tires' not 'wider wheels'.

Will I need spacers on the rear? I plan on putting 1/4" spacers only on the front. Everything comes in today and plan on getting everything installed tomorrow or Thursday. pics to come.

Yes, what WPG-RAM said is basically correct. The need for 1/4" wheel spacers is related to the width of the tire, not the height. The stock wheels have a +19 offset. Because of that you cannot clear a wider tire than a 285 without hitting the upper A-arm. 1/4" spacers will give you more clearance on the inside to clear the wider tire.

I know man, definitely blows my mind. It's weird how these trucks/parts can be built that much different to allow that.

I would definitely put them on the back as well. The front already sticks out a half inch further than the front stock so now you'd be at 3/4" difference. Looks a little funny IMO.
