you could probably even put 11R's on those rims.. though the extra width is different to drive than a 9R or 10R

Southern Tire Mart is on the way. They'll move the 9rs to the rear and put the 10rs on the front.

It was going to take a week to get 9rs from Dallas.

Good idea having a more common tire on the front.

If any of you reading this have 9r22.5 tires, be warned. I gambled on old tires and lost.

I'm really glad you're getting this resolved. No dinner/beer needed...but I'll never turn down coffee! I look forward to seeing you and your rig here, near Flagstaff, someday. We have a good overnight parking spot with your name on it...plus some great forest boondocking across the road from us.

Again thanks to all, as I sit in the shade at Coyote creek nm.

Realistically the 9R tires are closer match to my bus weight. The rear axle weighs in at 12,000 and change. That puts 3000 on each rear tire. The 9r are rated at 4300 pounds each. That left me with a comfortable 4400 pound reserve.

The 10R is rated at 5675 lbs. I have 5750 lbs on the front axle or 2875 on each front tire,.plenty of reserve load.

Hoping tire drama is over . Cheers

Glad you came out of that unharmed and finally got a solution and thanks for sharing this setback with everyone.
It should be an eye opener and warning for all of us to check those tires regularly and new buyers to learn how to read tire codes.
Safe travels
Cheers

Many places do but I haven’t found anyone who wouldn’t sell me tires. My local BestDrive tire shop is my go to now those guys treat me well cut me a discount and love the busses.

Just a heads up, a angle grinder does not work well on tires. It will eventually if it doesn't burn out first, but you are better off getting a reciprocating saw, those work much better.

Or remove the wheel if you can.

Drive on a single tire. No problem. Also 10r22.5 will fit on the rim. The 9 is inches of width. Most setups can handle 11r22.5ís.

How does one cut through both tire beads? They're down inside the rim, out of reach of any angle grinder.

Clarification, the 9" is tread width. The 9R22.5's, 10R22.5's and 11R22.5's do have different diameters.
