Smallest 13 Inch Trailer Tire


Do you sell a smaller 13 tire than the 175/80/13? Something more narrow and not as tall. Still want the load range D. Thanks.

I have another option but the smallest 13 inch tire that we offer is a 175/80/13 like the Kenda Karrier # AM10210.

The only option to get a smaller tire would be to go to a 12 inch tire like the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range D # AM10130 which will be about 3 inches shorter and 1 inch narrower than a 175/80/13 tire but will have a lower maximum load rating of 1220lbs at 65 psi.

If you have a 3500lb or larger axle you will need to change out your axles and suspension to work with 12 inch wheels so I would stick with the 13 inch wheels.

If you have a 2000lb axle you will be able to use a 12 inch wheel is definitely an option to consider.

If you choose to switch to a 12 inch tire you will need to use a 12x4 inch wheel like Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM20151 if you have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern or the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 4 on 4 # AM20140 if you have 4 on 4 bolt pattern.

I included a helpful article that will help you measure your trailer's bolt spacing.
