Answer: 
Stairs stringers should be installed on 16" centers, meaning a 48" wide set of stairs will have a total of 4 stringers. Most decks are designed on a 50 lb / sq ft load assessment, stair stringers correctly installed on 16" centers will exceed this rating easily.
However...make sure any stair stringers you purchase have at least 5" of back area depth...the area where the tread and the riser meet at 90

However...make sure any stair stringers you purchase have at least 5" of back area depth...the area where the tread and the riser meet at 90 degrees...the thickness of the remaining material back to the edge of the lumber must be 5" or more...easiest way to tell is to buy stringers made out of 2x12 base material...be very wary of any stringers made out of 2x8...even some 2x10 cores fail this...
Always check with local building code enforcement officials...they will give you the best advice...before you spend your hard earned money... Read Less

Always check with local code inspector before purchasing stairs stringers to ensure the ones you purchase will meet local codes. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi John,
I doubt any store has a ready made stringer to suit your needs...75.5 x 81 equates to nearly a 45 degree incline...
I would suggest using one of the online stair calculators, one gives me a result of 10 treads, each of 2 of 5/4x6, treads, so using 2 x 10 lumber, create a stringer pattern matching the following :
(Based on 10 rises of 7-5/8")
Total Run (projection): 7' 6"

(Based on 10 rises of 7-5/8")
Total Run (projection): 7' 6"
Total Rise: 6' 4"
Step Run: 10"
Step Rise: 7-5/8"
Bottom Step Rise: 6-5/8"
Angle: 37.23°
Stringer Length: 9' 5-1/16"
If you don't have the necessary experience to create a stringer from scratch, perhaps you could purchase one of the 8 step and use it as a template to create a 10 step unit...just make sure the back space area remains above 5" thru the section...use 2 x 10 or 2 x 12 lumber ...don't use 2 x 8 lumber, as it will not yield the required 5" backspace needed for code.
If you don't have room for that run length, you may need to add a transition platform, which should be a minimum of 36" x 36" in size...
Hope this helps... Read Less

5-Step Pressure-Treated Pine Stair Stringer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stairs are basic pine treated lumbar and are easy to assemble but BEWARE that these are not squar... Stairs are basic pine treated lumbar and are easy to assemble but BEWARE that these are not square! The tread angles are off and when building several sets of stairs for my deck I found that cuts for the stair tread vary up to 1/4" each. Check these by stacking them together before purchasing to ensure they all match? The angle end angles can easily be adjusted by trimming for square.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product and time of delivery were excellent. The stringer were of high quality, easy to install and look good.
Date published: 2016-08-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looked flimsy The stringers looked fragile so I searched reviews and found after the fact (I had already stained the stringers) that reviewers were saying they were most likely not to code as they are made out of 10" boards, not 12". So, to be on the safe side, I ended up not using them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They're stringers For what I am using them for. They will work perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a great buy Like a lot of projects I do I bought 6 stringers knowing that I would only need 3 or 4. I was lucky I did because two of the stringers were cracked so bad to be unusable, In fact the end step plates fell off when I uncrated them. After that I was able to use four with some glue and screws to make them stronger only to find that they were very poorly made. The cuts for the steps were very uneven. When mounted the first two steps would be level the the next three or so were a half bubble or more out of level. This not the way I build, nor a product of such low quality that a home center should carry. Some of the treads were as they should be others were terrible. Never again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted a challenge putting my deck stairs on Executive Summary: Not quality, frustrating, but will do if you're up for a challenge to mending wood and doing some math. The pieces arrived in two generally beat up boxes (delivery folks weren't pleased to drop it off). I ordered 4, one of which was not like the others but could generally work around it. A couple of treads were 1/2" deeper than others but generally usable. A couple of them looked like they ran unevenly through a table saw. About 1/16" was cut into a side. Again, not a deal breaker but certainly not quality. There was an uneven edge to the bottom of the stringer. Again, nothing that can't be worked around if you're up to the challenge. I then tried to attach the hangers to them and wound up splitting the wood straight through knocking a riser off. That's because the grains are parallel to the treads which, oddly enough, is where the nails drive into. So, a little pre-drilling before nailing on others and some mending tiles on the knocked off bits, and it's solid again. So, if you're wondering why I didn't return them. Boxes were too beat up to re-use, I don't have a car to transport, and, before this experience I imagined this is always how it goes. Now I've learned better: When in doubt, return it. Thanks for the learning experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These stringers don't meet code. Be absolutely sure to check local building codes before buying any stingers from HD. These stringers are made from 2X10s resulting in not enough wood between the back of the stringer and the tread/riser joint. They need to be made from 2X12's. I have to completely rebuild my stairs to pass inspection now. A huge loss of time and money as HD won't give the dimension of this most critical area. See attached photo. HD's stringers are about 4 1/2" in this area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not straight When I ordered the stringers, and they arrived, they weren't level or straight. The height and pitch didn't match what I needed for my deck, but I made do with what I purchased.
