Watch the stud length with dual aluminum wheels.  If you're going from steel, they'll likely have to be changed out.   When changing, consider the width of two aluminum wheels. 
The inner is going to be screwed by facing the hub.  The steel wheel, assuming it's a 22.5 also, would be a good inner dual.   Weight isn't an issue on a bus. 
Are you running hub piloted wheels now?   
You probably know about this, but, for those that don't, you cannot install aluminum wheels on steel wheel studs...not typically.  And, the hub/lugnut design must match.  The studs can be changed to accomodate the additional thickness of aluminum wheels.
