Anyone ever use a 275 R80 22.5 tire on stock rims of a Chevy Workhorse 24?

The answer you are looking for is "no" I would not consider fitting 275R80 22.5" tires to a W24. and .... there's little resemblance to a Chevy in a Workhorse only a GM Vortec engine.

Thanks for joining us here in the WCMC and please come back and visit us often.

I see couple of problems...

1) The width of the stock rim is probably not wide enough to properly mount the tire. This would lead to to much sidewall flex.

2) Assuming that you fix problem #1 I would suspect that the rear dual spacing is probably not correct.

3) On some coaches you may even have a height/width problem. The tire might rub....
