OK Y'all got me! Chalk it up to 'too soon old and too late schmart!' I was thinking about rotating wheels on a car. Of course, the tires would have to come off the rims and be reinstalled with the rotation arrow in the right direction. I get it!

Thanks guys, I would not have guessed 7.5" wheels on a 40 foot bus - even my PT-36 had 8.25" wheels. Having 7.5" wheels does limit your choices.

According to the chart I should run 90 on the steers ans 75 on the drives and tag. Probably would ride like a marshmallow. I run 110 on the steers and drive and 90 on the tags. Been that way for 46K and no issues.

I would not replace one side of drive. ANY difference in diameter, will make the differential work constantly.

According to Michelin's data, the replacement will fit 7.5 and 8.25 rims. Thanks Melvin: Michelin also cautioned me about mixing different styles on the same axle. So taking Randy's idea, I'm working with Flo's adjuster to put the new ones on the steers, and mount the old steers on the drive. Waiting on his OK now.
Thanks for all your tips and comments. What a group....!
