Tires. Again!

Currently have Goodyear 275/80r/22.5. Want to replace with hankook 295/75r/22.5. Hankook tires are 2/10s inch larger Tire dealer says the clearance should be fine. 2006 monaco diplomat.

The diameter doesn't appear to be a problem, what about clearance between the duals? That could be a problem but probably not. Best to check it though.

Our 2005 Diplomat has 275/70R22.5 Hankooks which are the size of the original Goodyears that were on the coach. Will this size work for you?

I replaced my mix of overage tires from the prior owner with Hankook AH12 11R 22.5 16 plys and LOVE the improvements in ride, handling and quiet.

The 295's are 20mm, or approximately 7/8" wider. The diameter is so close you won't notice a difference in final drive ratio accelerating or braking. As one person stated, as long as there is enough clearance between the duals, you'll be fine; and most likely, you've got plenty of room. Having 120mm more width of rubber on the road will increase rolling drag, but in a MH, I doubt you'll notice.
