I have an old tub with a 2 valve shower faucet with diverter. The
valves are 10" center to center, and I haven't been able to find a
replacement with this dimension. Everything seems to be 8" on center
now, so if I can't find one of the proper size, then I will have to
mess up the tile--something I would prefer not to do.
Does anyone know where I might find a 10" unit online? If not, are
there any options other than ripping out the tile and starting over?
All suggestions appreciated.

I hate to say this but I think you are screwed.
I dont know if these will help at all but they are worth a try.

Those are the big 4 faucet manufacturers
I'll also give you this number to call. Not a manufacturer but a
distributer for claw foot and vintage plumbing supplies.
Also depending on how attached you are to your existing tile work you
may consider having a standard 8 inch set modified. Some of the
cheaper sets use copper tube to join the two valves to the diverter.
Splicing it might not be too hard.
I am just tossing out suggestions.
Here's one you can try (hope the url will work in this format) you should be
able to browse to what you want from their homepage.
Know any machinists? If I couldn't find one, I'd probably cut the
manifold of an 8" cast brass one on both sides of center, bore the
ends for copper pipe, then solder the thing back together at 10". Even
easier if the manifold is tubular and the valve bodies are cast....
