99 American Eagle Tire Size

Hi I have a 99 American Eagle, it is ready for new tires,the stock tire size is 275/70/22.5. I am considering going to 275/80/22.5 was wondering if anyone has done this , and if there is enough clearance in the front tire wells for this size tire? Or is there any other issues I need to consider ? Thanks for your ideas

Johnson14, here is a chart that should shed a little light on tire size? Yes, I am a TOYO fan.

For what it's worth my 98' Eagle has 275/80/22.5's on it, Continental HSR 2's. After 26,000 miles they have been alright, no issues.

Look into Double Coin tires....so far so good on two OTR trucks and my motorhome, about 100k miles combined, great wear and price
