Is there such a tire as a 225/70/22.5? I can find chains for them but I cant find a supplier for the actual tire. Id like to try and find some if they do actually exists as they are the same diameter as a 7.00 x20 Any help is appreciated
The wheel is different though, do you have 22.5” wheels for the truck? Depending on the truck you may do fine with a little taller tire, for example 9r22.5 tires fill up the fenders and look ok on a 48-54 two ton, on 22.5” wheels.
Hey Grigg, Iam looking at a set of 22.5 alcoas part no 873607. they are a 7.5 x 22.5. was going to get a set of adaptors made. My initial investigations found a 225/70/22.5 which is perfect to replace the 7.00x 20 on the front and 255/70/22.5 on the rear which would be a good replacement for the 7.50x20 rears. the 255/70/22.5 rears are no problem but I went searching for the 225/70/22.5 for the front and now I cant seem to find any suppliers. I was under the impression it was a tyre that was used a lot in RVs. Now iam not sure if they ever existed
What year and model truck? You can probably use same size front and rear, and probably fit larger than stock. Although a 7.5” wheel is getting a little wide for these old trucks, 6” rim and tires that fit a 6” rim might fit under the fenders better. Won’t be original anyhow, so as long as the tires and wheels fit you’re good to go.
Hey Grigg, I've been looking around a few forums at a few things and this Grigg fella comes up a fair bit. Was looking at a Diesel engine swap site last night and was looking through Griggs photo album of an old chev truck. Hold with a 6v53 Detroit. Any one you know?
