Rich a belated welcome to the Newmar forum and irv2.
Check out this LINK it may help.
The rear tires have always been a concern if tires are to wide they will shafe and heat up and cause you some problems. Most of us stay with the original tires that came on chassis.
You can always check with Spartan as to what they would advise.

295/80R22.5 tires will not fit a 1999 Dutch Star Diesel Pusher. They are too large and will rub and hit several things. The largest tires you can use are 275/70 and 275/80 tires. I recommend the 275/80 because they give a smoother ride.

Michelin recommends 295/80 tires be mounted on 9.00" rims and they will also fit on 8.25" rims. Your 1999 DSDP has 7.50" rims so you have to stay with the 275.80 or 275/70 tires.

Inquiring minds would like to know- what are you trying to gain with such a large expenditure on tires and wheels?

295 tires on a 1998 Dutch Star will hit the inside of the front wheel well when you cut sharply and may hit the jacks. When you dump the air bags the tires will touch the top of the wheel well. On the rear the only problem is when you dump the air it may crunch the top of the wheel well.

Rich: It may be a good deal,but, how many times have you heard "I have a deal for you!"
Personally, I think you are asking for trouble and don't forget your axle weight ratings will not change so will you be gaining anything?
