Question 325 MH tire size?

My wife and I are about to purchase a 1985 325 LIMITED, TB Motor Home. I will need to replace the tires on it. Presently it has 8R19.5 on it. I was thinking about going to 225/70R 19.5.

Does anyone have any experience if the clearance between the tires on the duel wheels will be OK?

Any brands or style preferences experience?

Handling issues with a particular brand or style?

What did you buy? I am in same position.

I need to replace 8 on my 1988 345.

Did you change from 8r 19.5 to 225/70r 19/.5?

I have Alcoa Aluminum rimís and did change from 8R19.5 to the GOODYEAR G670 RV 225/70R19.5 with no problem. They run cool, ride smooth and no issue with full turning in the front wheel wells. No problem with the spacing between the duel rears. I have lost about 6% on my speedometer. (At 70 MPH on my Speedo, I am actually at 66 MPH) I do not see this as an issue, as I can do the math J
