Yes, the rim can be offset by adjusting the spokes (if you've got clearancve on the other side, and it hasn't already been offset). Not sure how much is allowable.
KTM do a sprocket spacer - it's around 1mm thick, and is the same shape as the hub/sprocket carrier. I can't find the part number, but I have used mine on KTM's and Bergs. Should be ok to use washers, but you'd have to be careful of thickness, or could misalign the chain (also watch your sprocket bolts - they may catch on the swingarm)

My wheel is spoked perfectly If you have a wide tyre and spoke it to the right it will rubb the swingarm!
Even the michelin 160 sometimes touched the swingarm on my 570 it had a little clearance but tyres compress/bend while riding so don't spoke it to the right till you have no clearance...
Adding washers between sprocket maybe good option but the countershaft is already a weak point on these bikes adding washers will not improve it just learn to live with a little chainrub and/or add a decent chainblock
Some people even use a grinder to the left side on the tyre when installing new tyre to get more chain clearance haha

I've heard that about the countershaft.

Just as a precaution for clearance, I ordered up the KTM rear sprocket spacer and am trying to sort a good chain block through a guy who makes ones on supermotojunkie.com.

I know some guys run thinner chains. Is there any particular chain that gives a good amount more clearance?

Any part number for the sprocket spacer? And the sprocket bolts may need to be longer as well.
I'm using washers now.

Yep. That's the piece I just ordered. Need to see about longer bolts as pollo mentioned.

I run one of the widest 520 chains (thicker side plates is better wear resistance) 5 inch rim and I guess al tyres would work on my bike.
A did erv 3 is a good narrow chain but expensive...
On Jumps I do hit the Exhaust on the right with tyre.
On the left chainrub but it works...
I guess sprocket spacer is a better idea instead of spacing the wheel more to the right not only Exhaust clearance but also you want the rear wheel to be perfect inline with the front.
I bought a chainblock from toxicmoto.com
I will fit it in a couple of weeks and post pics

Tyre on the right is a metzeler 165 slick middle metzeler rain 160 left bridgestone 165

the bridgestone is the narrowest tyre of the 3 the metzeler slick is a bit wider but not much.
The metzeler 160 rain tyre looks way wider than the slicks.

This is the chain rub I got on the bridgestone but I must say it was probably more a worn chain issue than the tyre being to wide...
The chain was stretched out + a lot of side play (took the chain apart yesterday and the new one has almost no sideplay and o rings look better )
Next tyre I am gonna use is the metzeler slick I am sure with a new chain I will have zero tyre rub the rain tyre will probably hit the chain sometimes but sure it will work on 5 inch rims WITHOUT using spacers or spoking the wheel offcenter
Now I also installed a good chainblock instead of the crappy 4 one you can buy from ktm will post pics of chainblock comparisson/install later
