help on tire situation

My winnebago has dual rear tires, 245/70/19.5 which I guess is pretty typical. I am replacing the tires and have seen wide tires that obviously need a new wider wheel, where one tire replaces the two tires. Any thoughts on this vs just replacing the two on each side. Does anyone know what size wheel and tire these wide tires are? thanks.

Hi Quincybear,
These tires have been available for several years. The tire retailer can provide the component costs to switch. It isn't cheap. Consider ensuring you understand the distribution network (availability) for the specific tire. Availability of a spare could be shocking news to you. While they may look cool and neat, for me, I don't see the benefit for my coach.

Primary benefit is less weight and lower maintenance costs. Be aware that these will shorten the stance of your coach as one tire is more narrow than two. And. if you do not use an aluminum wheel the weight advantage goes away. Very high $ for our application.
