We are lookin at purchasing new tires for our 13 foot boler trailer.We have decieded on Carlisle radials.My problem is the tires on the boler are very old,look like the original 1980.The conversion on the size is 165 80/13.The smallest Carlisle radial is 175 /80R13.Would the different size present a problem?The only tire available in the correct size is DeeStone 165/80R13.I have never heard of this brand and would really like the Carlisle if the size difference would not present a problem...Thanks,PatC

The Carlisle is an excellent choice and the size will present no problem.
The actual difference is negligible.

I beg to differ. I found the 175/80R13 could be problematic.

Pictures and descriptions can be seen in post # 19 here:

With a follow up 7 posts down on post # 26 of the same thread.
