Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.
You you can use long radius 90's or put 2 45's together. The code says you must follow the manufacturer's instructions and I know of no prohibition for using 90's for Rheem furnaces. There are limitations on the length of the run and each fitting adds to that effective length of the run. I'd need the actual model number of your unit (XR90 is the series) to pull up your install instructions.
I'm logging off for the night. If you don't have any more questions I'd appreciate a favorable rating. If you have more questions I'll respond in the morning.
