My new wide front tires

Time to pick up a new set of PSS's. But since the last set, I've got more power to the back wheels and the steering is upgraded so I want wider meat.
What is the widest tire we can put on the front. This is taking into consideration you have dropped your car an inch around also.

I'd like to keep the square set up but has anyone put 305/35/20 on the front?
One other question if anyone knows, why not run a 305/30/20? Wouldn't that be a lower profile and give more clearance? Drawbacks??

Maybe this should be in tire section but theres enough 1LE's out there now that I would imagine someone has tried this.

You can't fit a 305/35/20.
You can fit a 305/30/20 or a 295/35/20 though.

It will help you decide. It will not say "...these fit a camaro". It will tell how much wider or larger etc, room relative to what exists.

But again if you run a Asian made tire it will be narrower then American made tire. I used to run a 315 35 17 on a 17x9 which was a nitto drag radial. Then later run a 295 35 17 goodyear and it barely fit.

You can't get to scared on height, it is not the overall height of the tire at rest, it is the height at the center of the axle to the road. No tire is a perfect circle on a car there is squat pending air pressure. Not everyone runs max pressure. so you see 7mm taller it is really 3.5mm and son that is less then 1/16 which if your tire is worn it already the same size as your stock size.
