Is there any chance that a 305/70/17 will fit a JK at stock height? They are the same price as 285/70/17, so I'll go bigger for the same money if they'll fit. They are supposed to be 34.4" tall and 12.4" wide on a 17x8.5 with 4.75 backspacing. 35s are supposed to go with a 2" lift, so I know this would be tight if it's even close.

I'm running 33x12.5x15 on my jk on 15x8 inch wheels without a problem. I wouldn't want to go any bigger than that on stock suspension or else there will be a lot of rubbing. The wheels I run have 3.75 inches of backspacing so there is no rubbing at full turn. With the 34.4 inch tire you are looking at, you will encounter some rubbing on your flares off road.
Overall, yes they should work. As long as you don't mind some rubbing. I'm sure others will chime in with more knowledge.
So it's been, and shall be weighed: though many are born, few are "made". Faithful Always, they shall remain, dogs to loose when war is waged.
Most "35s" are in fact in the 34" range, just like these. I've seen a few without lifts and, in my opinion, they look pretty silly--the fender is almost sitting on the tire. Might even hit the fenders going over speed bumps and the like. Budget boost!!
