opinions on using THIS tire rather than 275/70 22.5.

These tires are truck drive tires by the description in the link.

opinions please

Second part of the question..
would you mount/run 3 year old, but never mounted, never run tires?
price 4 for $400.00 private seller on line sales page. (date code 3216)

OBTW -- NEW they are $750.00 each.

I would definitely run 3 year old tires. Since they are unmounted it is easy to check for any ozone cracking or other deterioration from storage. I would not expect to get 7 more years out of them but I would not hesitate to buy them if they still lokk like new and were not stored out in the weather.

Discovered that the 11 R 22.5 are 4 inches taller, and have a lower load weight rating.

I'll pass.

I changed out all of our 275/70-22.5s to 11R-22.5s. Ours have the same weight rating as the 275s that came off.

One of the best MH decisions we've ever made. Then again, ours always turned too many RPM in my opinion. The taller tires did just exactly what I was looking to do.

I just opened the ad, @ $400 each I would have passed too. (I read your post as all 4 for $400, not $400 each) Thats what we paid for fresh new Bridgestones, and the tire shop took our 275s in trade too.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Take about confusing. When it says "selling for $400.00 each" it sure reads like $1,600 for the 4!

For $100 each I'd consider it.

I went from 11R22.5s to 255/75s because I had a hard time finding the 11s. Next tire change I'll be going back or trying to find a metric that has the same diameter as the 11s. My speedo is off by about 6%. I son't know why the chassis manual called out the 255s as a replacement.

Not sure I would want the noise associated with that tread.
