Smallest on left, ideal size rim in middle, largest on right maybe. Thats kinda how I always took it.

Normally the one in () or in the middle is the width rim that the tire measurements were based on. A narrow rim makes the tire taller ect...

Either of the tires u had listed will fit ur stock wheels. But will prob rub alittle on the radius arm. Not a big deal though. I had the same 17s as in your avatar on my 05 single cab when it was still stock... Nothing like the look of a single cab.

I have 305/65-18 BFG's on my truck with the 2" leveling kit (on aftermarket 18x9 4.5 backspace wheels) and I think it's just right. The 35/12.50's I had before required a little massaging of the inner fenders not to rub, but the 305's fit just fine. FWIW, I think the 325's are too wide for stock wheels and you'll wear the centers out of the tires faster.

i have 325 60 18s on my stock 18x8s. they fit. im not sure if the 17" stock wheels are 8" wide tho, if they are 7s i wouldnt go with a 325. after my tires are worn out i am going back to the stock size. mine are D range and with the wide tire on a narrow rim the truck doesnt drive that great. its ok unloaded, can still feel the weak sidewalls. towing can be scary at times.
