Sorry for the stupid question, but just trying to figure out the closest match if not 10R22.5.

I am not sure what your tire replacement strategy is, but if it were me, I would replace the tires with the same size as the Monaco installed when it was new. On my previous coach, a 1995 Monaco 34' Dynasty, Monaco factory installed tires were 295R75-22.5.

A 10r 22.5 is a tire commonly used on trucks. It would probably be a match for your size but you would have to check the specs. on it for weight capacity and also to see if the outside diameter is the same or close.
My coach had 295 70 22.5s on it and I put on 11r 22.5 truck tires. The o.d. was close to the same and the load rating was a bit better.
It rides as good or better than it did with the old tires, and they were considerably cheaper. If you need to replace one on the road they are an easy size to find as well. There are alot of nay sayers as to using truck tire sizes on a motorhome, but they work fine for me.

Most tire manufacturers post a revolutions per mile in their tire specs , along with load capacity , required rim width and spacing of rims for duals.
You can get away with some variation from original sizing , revolutions per mile would be one that would only have to be within 5% to get the ride height and speedo close , other numbers have to be exact or the replacement tire won't work .

You should have no problem finding a 10R22.5 - its a fairly common size for trucks and semi-trailers. Bridgestone, Continental, Kumho, Firestone, Goodyear & Dunlop, to name a few brands.

A 295/75R22.5 is usually very close, but you have to compare all the details (overall diameter, Revs/mile, section width, dual spacing, etc.) for the specific tire model you are considering.

A 255/80 is going to be a little small, I think.

I replaced the 255s on my Winnebago Journey with Continental 10R22.5s . They turn fewer revs per mile. Consequently my speedometer reads a little low. When speedo reads 60, GPS says 63.

Thanks for the info everyone. I can't find what size tires it came with when new, but the 10R22.5 are from 2006. Time for new shoes.

So your rig doesn't have the sticker on the wall with the weight ratings and tire sizes? I know they weren't required in the earlier models so you might not have them.

This is the best cross-reference for tire size dimensions. It provides tire sizes, models, and revolutions per mile:

Thanks for sharing Dennis. That is better than anything I found when I searched.

Thanks, Mr_D. I thought that sticker behind the seat only had the GVWR and the VIN.

It shows 10R22.5 @ 85psi cold front, same size @ 105psi dual cold rear.

My rig came with 10R22.5 tires.

Weighing the axles determined that the front was nearly overloaded. To meet the measured weight, I needed to run 115 Psi in the front tires. That was also the max tire pressure noted on the sidewall of the tires.

At replacement time, I switched to 295/75R 22.5 tires in the front.

I can now run at 100 psi in the tire for a bit softer ride and inflation capacity cushion.

The dimensions and revolutions of the old tire and new tire are nearly identical.
