24.5" wheels to 22.5" wheels

As I was spending another quality lunch hour with the new mistress, I noticed a placard behind the driver's seat. So I moved the seat and took a photo. But wait...there's something weird.



But the coach has 22.5" wheels on it.

I guess someone could have replaced them with 22.5" wheels at some point in the past. Why would they do that though?

Hopefully they have the same weight bearing. Maybe they wanted to lower the cost of the tires? Or unlikely as it may be, the sticker was printed wrong.

I have seen this before. I had a Freightliner M2 hauler and during one of our get togethers, I asked another owner why his wheels looked smaller. He said he changed them out to save money.

I'm betting the label is wrong.

Sure looks like the placard was not updated from earlier years when they did fit 24.5" wheels to the Signatures
