My ancient dump truck has 9.00-20 tube type on Dayton lock ring rims. I'd like to get away from the lock rings as some tire shops don't like to deal with them and although I can change them I'm just not up to the bull work anymore. I even had some kid say "those are split rims and illegal". No, they're not split rims and they're not illegal, they're lock ring and just a pain. Back in the day there were no tubeless and we wrestled with lock rings and inflation cages. Anyway, a little research suggests that 22.5 Dayton rims will work on my spoke wheels. I'd like to confirm that. There are way more 22.5s out there in good used condition. My truck has steer tires all around and I chain it up for my wife to use to plow the drive when I'm on the road. The trouble with that is once chained the truck is single purpose. Having a good traction type may let me leave the chains off. Another question: 10R22.5 seems to be the direct exchange for 9.00-20. I've found lots of 11R22.5s for sale. They're just a little taller but I wonder about width. The 9.00-20s run close to the springs - the chains sometimes lightly hit. Could the 11R22.5 run too close even without chains? I think the 9.00-20s are an oversize as it is. TIA
