Axel problem on 2002 Flagstaff 26ds

I bought this trailer two years ago. I put on new tires and had the axels aligned a year ago, and have now discovered that one of my tires is rubbing on the inside edge of the wheel well. I was told by the company that aligned the axes that the axel had shifted and when they adjusted the camber, the tire was moved closer to the edge. Everything else lines up fine, and it pulls well. I trimmed some of the plastic to provide a bit more room. Clearance on the other side is 9/16 inch so there wasn't much space to start with. I am not so sure but what it came out of the factory that way. Is there a way to shim the rim out to provide more clearance on the "rubbing" side? Maybe between the hub and the rim or between the spindle and the axel.

It came with 215 R75 14 tires. Maybe I could go to a 205 tire, but would this place the trailer closer to the ground, and also I hate to replace new tires. Any help would be appreciated.
