To see all of the correct wheel and tire combos you'd need check out the link I attached.

The option I would recommend is the part # TA43RR which is a Load Range C tire size ST175/80R13 mounted on a white spoke wheel with a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inch.

That's a pretty big jump in tire/wheel size so I'd be surprised if you can pull it off, but I guess it is technically possible. You'll likely need to upgrade your hub so you want to get a replacement that is compatible with the larger size, and then you need to make sure that you have at least 4" of clearance from the tire to the fender as well as at least 2" of clearance from the sidewall to the trailer frame. If you can cross all of this off (and retain at least 2" between tires for a tandem axle trailer) then you should be good to go.
