What my spec plate says: 265/75R22.5 - 22.5x7.5
What my bus has on it:
Rear: 10R22.5 (Good Year with 3/4 tread on them I think made in '08 )
Front: 10R22.5 (Good Year with 1/2 tread on them made in '06)
I don't have enough money to replace all 6 tires so I'm just hoping to replace the front 2.
Eventually replacing the back ones but not sure when.
From what I've been reading the 10R is not very common and is recommended to go to 11R.
Also- Speed is important to me so going from 65 to 68 would be a plus.
I've seen about 5 different tires sizes people are using so no clue what to do here.
I can appreciate a tight budget but please don't short yourself on safety. Based on the age of your tires I wouldn't trust any of them for more then a very short low speed trip to the tire shop. You state that speed is important and you are wanting to go faster, faster is hotter and that's when tires pop. Your tires are seriously timed out, my opinion is unless this is a stationary tiny home park it and find the money for all new tires. You can go cheaper on new drives by shopping offshore Asian but I'd stick with name brand quality on the steers.
