Talking New tire problem> wrong size!

Have a 08 Puma 27RLS & purchased tires from Sears on line! I copied down the size of the original tires but got #s wrong & new tires are larger! It is causing some abrasion on the plastic liner inside the wheel wells! Any thoughts on a fix besides putting the correct size on! ( too easy!) I am hoping that spacers between the leaf springs & the axles would work?!
Does anyone have any ideas & or solutions for my boo boo?? Thank you very much!
Cheers,
Paul

paul if the tire is rubbing on the top of your wheel well then you could flip the axle and get 6 in. or so but unless you do it your self it will not be as cheap as new tires. don't do blocks between leaf and axle very unsafe on a camper. why not just say they sent you the wrong size and get new corect size. there was a mix up somewhere it happens

I'd switch to a smaller tire size.
