R20 snow tires

any tips on where to find R20 snow tires? - ( 9 R20 are what's on the bus now, but 8+ would work too - and I'm still looking for a set of used automatic tire chains

I have a pair of nearly new 9R20's on my Superior that im looking to upgrade to 11R22.5's. they are steer tires and not snow / drive tires though..



to me, if you are replacing all 4 drives or even all 6 tires, its worth it to find some good used rims and upgrade to 22.5;s.. you ditch the Tubes/ flaps, and retainer / split rims and now would be on industry standard sizes where you can find tires a plenty

I get your point, shame though, because all tires and rims have less than 3000 miles on them - quality tires too - the guy paid a small fortune for them
