Hello prjfm501,

Welcome to iRV2, we're really glad to have you here as a new member and are looking forward to reading your posts about your RVing experiences and adventures in your Newmar Canyon Star motorhome. You'll find a great bunch of folks on this site who are very knowledgeable of RVing, the rigs we use, and the places we go in them.

I moved your post out of the 'Website Technical Support and Suggestion Box' forum so it'd get more exposure and obtain some replies and as you'll see, they're eager to help and share their knowledge and experiences with others.

Again, welcome to iRV2, we're glad you joined.

Welcome prjfm501 to irv2.
The wheel well would not support a larger tire in them. If you can ask Newmar if they would build one with 22.5 tires not sure what they would say but probally wouldn't do it with that coach. Canyon Star

You have to be careful dealers say its a Workhorse when its really a Ford when you look at link you will see that must coachs come on Ford chassis's Workhorse is a option now if that option, more expensive chassis, comes with 22.5 tires than you have the chassis you want.
Join us in Newmar forum and good luck with your hunt for your coach.

The tire size is what the box manufacturer orders. Its my understanding that you can get 19" or 22.5" tires on the W-20 Workhorse. The W-22 and above all come with the 22.5" tires.

I wouldn't change the tires sizes at all if it were mine as your "box" was designed for the OEM tire size.

Changing to larger tires will throw off several things. First of all the speedometer and odometer.

In addition to all the above many have said in many casses there is no real advantage to the 22.5s!

prjfm501, Welcome to the IRV2 website glad you joined our group.
Order your coach with the 22.5 wheels/tire combination on a Workhorse chassis this choice gives you a better ride and handling characteristics. Ed.S
