tire size 155/80R13 on NT trailers

Anyone running 155/80R13 on their NT trailers? Want to verify there are no fit issues.

It's just under 1 inch wider so it should fit with.

Is there a better place to purchase wheels and tires from then recstuff.com?

I am running 14" wheels that are 5X4.5 bolt pattern. The important part is the back spacing, on your rims. Shoot for zero offset. You need to plan whether you are going to build over the frame, or sit on top. Over the frame will lesson the space between the tire and the frame. I have also used 1" wheel spacers to move the wheel out for more clearance. I have over 20K trouble free miles on the trailer with spaces.
