International......19" to 22.5"???

Found an International of interest but it has 19" wheels. I worried about clearance with the underbody boxes etc. Can I take the 22.5" wheels off of my wrecked International and bolt them on? I know the speedo will be off but that doesn't matter.

Both trucks are 4300 series and 2002 models.

The thing you will have to watch for is the gearing. The truck is geared for low pro rubber you put 22.5s the gearing will end up too tall. I can't remember if the brakes are smaller on the 19.5 low pro.

Also check the axle ratings if they are 10-21 your good to go if the truck has 8-17,500 keep looking for a different truck.

You are right about lack of ground clearance you will run into troubles with 19.5 low pro tires.

Does this truck have a 466 ?

Good Luck

You would need to swap springs, gears, etc. Not worth the time. Low profiles international suck.
