Haven't driven mine much in town but I fit in 2 Walmart spots with a slight overhang front and rear. Navigating the parking lots is more trouble than finding a parking spot.

If I'm ever living out of this one, I could see buying a shorter second bus for an RV. Probably whatever the shortest flat-nose is.

I have a 72 pax approximately 34 ft re. I haven't had too much issue getting around town. Parking in big lots is easy... Just a longer walk. But if you want to grab a rock star spot right in front of the cafe... Not happening lol

According to a quote that I just got, the Overall Diameter of 40.00 and Section Width of 10.00 equated to a SKU Desc:10R-22.5/14 M-170 TL RB (tubeless) and also a SKU Desc:1000R-20/14 R-1200 TT RB (Tubed) and now I see that this is not relevant at all to the question (tried to delete) But I needed to know this, I'm borrowing these 22.5 wheels and tires will replace my 10.00-20 Wheels and 30+ year old tires, before driving my rig home from Bozeman, MT.
