Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, you can run a 175/80-R13 tire on a trailer that came with a 175/80-D13 tire. The only difference between the two is that "R" stands for radial ply and "D" stands for diagonal.

For a replacement 175/80-R13 tire, I recommend the Karrier Radial Trailer Tire part # AM10210. Kenda tires are a top of the line option. This tire has a load range D (1,610 lbs per tire) with a 81 mph speed rating which is one of the highest we offer. It also comes with a 2-year warranty.

I have attached a review video on the above tire for you as well.
