I seem to be all alone with the bias ply tires. I still stand my ground though. They (or any other tires) will dry rot off before they wear off and not that I plan on selling the bus, but if I did...just saying new tires is sufficient...not new radials.

I'm surprised thet plugged a 14 or 16 ply steel belted radial. The steel belts can cut the pug off I've heard. I've been told a plug is good enough to get you to a service station, but it should be patched there. I don't know how much truth there is to that, but it would make me think that nylon belted bias ply tires might be ok with just a plug. For the record...I prefer plugs over patches from my work at a tire shop. They seem to hold up better.

The front of my bus has 10R22.5 Michelin tires they say regroovable on them so who does the grooving when it needs done?

I talked to one local guy he said replacement tires are about 300 bux each, ouch, when it comes time to replace can use 8R22.5?

DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT USING 8R22.5 TIRES ON THE BUS! They are much too narrow for your rims.

11R22.5 is a very common size, and usually cheaper than a 10R22.5 tire. I suggest Bandag retreads for the drive axle, and take-offs for the front. Also, the 11R's are slightly taller (an inch or two), and will give you a bit more highway speed.
