Question about wheels

I have an 1985 Fleetwood Tioga with 16.5 inch wheels on it. Can't get tires that size anymore. Anyone know if there are 16 inch wheels that might work on it?

I Googled 16.5 tires (Shopping) and found quite a selection of 16.5 tires. I don't know the other numbers you need, but here's two sources that shows a 9.5R16.5LT Load range E

Firestone*Transforce HT

$228.63 - Goodyear 9.50/-16.5LT 312218090 tires at SimpleTire.com

If you change the wheel size, you will have to get speedometer adjusted. If you go larger, you might have clearance problems in wheel wells.

don't know if your coach is ford or chevy based mine is ford based went thru this two years ago, went to local truck salvage bought used 16 wheels and put new kumo 235-80-16's on it.
way more load capacity plenty of room between the dual set up, tires were just slightly taller then old ones ,I did have to move my exhaust pipe, on mine they put it behind the step this year i replaced the exhaust and brought it out in front of the step.
16.5s are out there but 16s are every where so was a no brainer for me, the 16.5s were $205 each and the 16s were $154 plus wheels at $45 each so no big jump.
good hunting and good luck
