Woody,
If I am not mistaken, Ernie had those on his old coach! 'The Poodle Express". I would think that clearance would be the only issue.

Woody, the low pro's on the 24.5 wheels are almost the same diameter as the 22.5's, so no issue whatsoever. (BTW, I am looking for 2 real nice used 24.5 stud pilot wheels for the steering axle if anyone has a couple)

Mike H. has 24.5"s on his FC as I recall. Cheaper tires...if you already have the wheels.

Woody, I've run 24.5 wheels on my drive axle of my 78FC35 without issues. The PO had them on there to increase the stop speed.
