Even if they fit the bolt pattern, double check that they have 0 offset.

Also, wheels for trailer use usually have a higher load rating than those for passenger vehicles. See specifications below for a typical alloy wheel being used on Airstreams by many on this forum:

Wheel size: 16x6
Bolt Circle: 6x139.7 (same as 6x5.5)
Offset: 0 (zero)
Center Bore: 4.25
Load Rating: 3,200

3200 X 6 = 19,200 This may be necessary but seems like over doing it for a 34 ftr with 3 axles which will gross out at about 10,000 lbs. I wonder if the Tahoe wheels would be alright for my 34ft. trailer?

Again, check the offset. Trailer applications demand a 0 offset.
