Welcome to irv2.
If you read through this thread should give you the information you need.
Rear tires you have to be careful when changing tire sizes and not have the tires so close that they rub together when traveling friction will heat up sidewalls.
If the tires are all the same age you need new ones in front also thread will explain aging.

Why would you want to change the size? The 10R22.5 is a widely used size on commercial trucks & trailers, so it generally very competitive priced and readily available wherever you may be. Most of the major ire manufacturers offer that size too.

The nearest metric size is 295/80R22.5 and that should fit nicely. Gives a bit more load carrying capacity too, but probably will cost you 25% more per tire. And few tire dealers will have a 295/80 in stock, so it's always a special order from the warehouse.
