Probably not, unless you have a very tired old 305, in which case, you're still not in great shape..
I'd say upgrade you axles.

<font color=green>Sure the tires will perform great! The axles, on the other hand, will not be up to the task. I know this from personal experience, I spent the last 2 years breaking parts in my 12 bolt and D44 with 38s on them, even after they were beefed as much as possible.
