Discount Tire Direct's online tire size conversion tool is pretty handy.
Are you sure you weren't comparing a 305/70/17 to a 295/75/17 ? Per DTD's tire size tool, a 305/70/17 is 33.8" in diameter, while a 295/75/17 tire is 34.4" in diameter. Pretty easy for your eyes to wander a bit when looking at tire manufacturers online tire size charts.
Aftermarket wheels or OEM? You know you'll have to buy wheel spacers to use the OEM wheels with 12" wide tires. I have to believe that with aftermarket wheels with the correct offset and you'd have no worries. I'm running 33x12.5/15 tires (32"high) with TF 2" front and 1" rear spring spacers and have plenty of room for wheeling. IIRC while shopping for tires, the Nittos are good tires but on the heavy side compared to other options. With your stock gearing I'd be hesitant to go any larger than 305/70/17 in the Nittos.
Don't make a purchase based on what me or anyone else on here tells you. Call DTD or another volume tire seller and ask them. They know their stuff and are really helpful.
