Were the M500 wheels a 4.75" offset, like the WNR89340 from WheelsNow?\nDoes this offset cause the rear dual wheel's tires to rub against each other, with tires that are available today (radials) {77Travco's comment}? I'm asking because I need to make the transition from the 17" split ring to the 19.5" tubeless, and if I spend the big bucks, I want to make sure that I get it right...

I do not know the offset of the 19.5" wheels... (width is 6") hopefully someone can chime in or I can measure my spare wheel if needed.\nHere are a few pics of the same wheels with the 225/70R19.5 tires and then with the factory correct size 8R19.5 tires. Both sizes are radials. Notice how much skinnier and taller the 8R19.5's are.

Here are a few pics of the wheels without tires. Not sure if that will help you or not.
