Wheel and tire question

I have a 1992 rockwood class a pusher on a spartan chassis. My question is can I change my 8r19.5's to 245/70/19.5 on the front without any problems? I've read that the rear duals might rub in the center so I was gonna leave the 8r's on the back. Seems that these two sizes are only about a inch differance in heights. Reason being I've found 2 new Goodyear 245/70/19.5 for $150 for both.

X2, you will have to provide your rim width and pressure rating, to get the correct answer.
AND !!!!! Check the date codes on those tires , they may be cheap for a reason , if there over 5 years old , their not worth mounting on your rig , no matter how good they look.

Date code is a 4 digit code on the sidewall, E.G. 4005 means the tire was made in the 40th week of 2005 and would be 8 years old , Goodyear says 7 years is their RV tires lifespan.

Even if the tires were stored out of the sun they are questionable, because of age.
