Trailer: Scamp 1983

I just bought a 1983 13' Scamp and it needs new tires. The current tires are 165/80 R13 car tires. Is that okay or are regular "trailer tires" needed? Also, there is a decal that says the tire pressure should be 20#. Is that correct? If yes, won't that void the tire warranty. Dennis

You need trailer tires. The sidewalls on car tires are not sturdy enough for trailers. I got Carlisle ST175/80R13 for my Scamp 13. I contacted the Scamp factory and they said to ignore the 20# sticker and use the air pressure recommended for the tires. I think mine are rated for 50#.
