I am looking for new tires for my 03 Windsor. The size is 295/80/22.5. My question is, has anyone put 12R/80/22.5 on their rv?

I was looking for traction tires, because of the road conditions where I travel in the fall and spring. Most of what I found were way too tall to be any use, some were up to 4" taller. Any tire size you consider must be able to clear the floor and fenders, if your air suspension happens to fail on the highway, just so you can get off the road.

I replaced my four rear 295/80R22.5's with 11R22.5 in March, 2011. They are the same diameter and nearly identical revs/mile, so work fine. Cost a bunch less and 11R's are usually readily available wherever you may be.

However, I can't use them on the front because they have less load carrying capacity than a 295/80 LR H and my front axle is heavy (14,600 lb GAWR). I would have to use 12R's there, and that should not be a problem even though they are a bit larger than the 295/80. I have Goodyear G670's in 295/80 LR H on the front now and they are good for another three years, so haven't made any decisions yet.
