295/75R22.5 Tires, keep or change?

My tires don't look to bad treadwise, but on of the steerers looks like it has a cut in it, will try to get a pic later. Anyhow, when i called the shop they said they have 10 225 or 11 225 tires, and that it was important to have the same size tires all the way around. Looks like I am currently running 295/75R22.5 which is neither of these options. Should I look into changing? would they be the same diameter as on of the others,

Thanks,
dave

I know in other countries they like to use the metric designation for tire sizes. Have you tried using a tire size calculator to see what’s close to your current size? The most important thing is that tires across the same axles are the same. This means same tread patterns and load ratings and overall sizes left to right. But putting a slightly taller tire in the rear to get those ever elusive MPHs wouldn’t hurst safety or drivability. What kind of vehicle are these mounted on?

Look for date codes on the tire to determine how old they are. They may look new and be junk.

By law only rear tires are allowed to be retreaded. They SHOULD NOT be used as steer tires. Retreads are just carcasses that have been given a new lease in life. Good quality ones are almost as good as a new tire, shady ones can separate at high speeds and be dangerous. They should be inspected carefully by someone who knows what to look for.

Looks like they are all from 6 to 8 years old.

The 2 on the front and the outer passenger side rear are all 295/75r 22.5
The other 3 are 10 R 22.5

Here is a pretty good tire size calculator in where you can compare two different tire sizes to each other.

https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc....5-275-80r22.5

I hope this info is helpful to you!
