10r or 11r 22.5

I have 10rx22.5 tires on my bus, I have to get new steers. im thinking of going to 11rx22.5 they are more common tire, I have to change the rims as well there Daytons, my drives are 3years old so I wont be changing them for a while. other then the 11rs being more common, do you think spending the extra money on rims would be worth it? or just stay with the 10r tires

I'm guessing your 10R are maybe 7.75"? For 8.25", 8.25 is usually the minimum (but check the tire manufacturers spec).

I realize 10R is rather rare, but personally I wouldn't spend the money for new wheels unless you have replace tires often. And if you do, you might ask "why" and solve that problem rather than buying new wheels. I think you are talking around $200 each for that size painted wheel and half again that for alloy or stainless.

my 10r are 7.50, and your right its not worth changing out the rims, I did find used ones for 50.00 each, which isn't too bad, there common around here, but im on the fence, and I think Ill just stay with the 10r

For $50/wheel it is maybe worth considering. Assuming the wheels are not corroded at all.
