Anyone running 11R22.5 tires on a 99 Windsor with slide

I'm looking at new tires for my 99 Windsor 40 single slide. I currently have 295/75R22.5 LR G Toyo M147. I'd like to go to 11R22.5 LR H but I am afraid of the slightly taller tire because of the slide roller in the front drivers wheel well. There is plenty of clearance when suspension is inflated but the current tire tread rests slightly on the roller cover when suspension is dumped. Anyone with this configuration using a taller tire? Thanks.

I measured a set of those and found them 4" taller. More than enough to eliminate any clearance , should I loose an air bag while driving and rip the fenders off if I hit a bump when turning. That amount would also throw the speedo way out of wack and cause all sorts of problems with the trans shift pattern and coaches pulling power.

The 11R22.5's are only about 1" taller than 295/75R22.5 tires.

I ran Bridgestone R-280 11R22.5 Load Range H tires on our 2002 Dynasty (2 slides).

Worked really well, great ride.

I did have about 0.5 MPH error at 70 MPH before the Bridgestones and about 1.5 MPH error at 70 MPH after the Bridgestones.

What brand ? I was looking at Michelins, and found the 4" height difference. I could have lived with 1" but not 4.

I run the 11R22.5 on our 2000 Dyn with no problem, the spedo and odo is off a little but I dont use it anyway as we run a Silverleaf for all my gauges except air gauge. One plus if you have a tire problem on the road you can get a replacement about any truck tire store.
