Tire Sizes

Can a 11R22.5 replace a 295/80R22.5 ? Comparing specs on each are pretty close but is there other considerations to be aware of?

Check the load capacity, I think the 11R22.5 has quite a bit lower weight rating. The Toyo chart shows it at 6610 single and the 295 at 7830 single.

Yes it can IF the load capacity is sufficient. As hypoxia says, the 11R22.5 has a somewhat lower load rating. It is usually sufficient to replace a 295/80 on the rear (drive) axle where weights run lower, but maybe not enough for a front axle (only two tires to share the load). I've been running 11R's in place of 295/80 on my rear axle for 4 years now.

If you need more weight capacity, a 12R will usually fit as well, but using it on the back axle throws the speedometer off a bit.
