One possibility for wheels with different offsets is to use spacers between the hub and the wheel. This will push the wheel back to where it belongs in the wheel well. My Triumph Spitfire vintage racer had a set of aluminum spacers when it had the wider wheels and 8 1/2 inch slicks on it (we brought the car back to vintage specs and use a less-wide wheel now).

The thing I do not know is how safe spacers are on RVs or even if they are legal. Anyone know?

Pop - what kind of difference did the change from R19.5 to R16 make? That's a lot, relatively speaking!
