Jayco 1007 tire upgrade question.

Hello everybody, I just purchased my first popup, we are family of five and enjoy camping. The problem is that my 2010 jayco jay 1007 was used only once and since have sunk into pavement on the storage lot... About 1.5-2 inches deep, tongue wheel sunk even more. I received a discount for tire replacement but cannot locally find suitable tires: 5.30-12 load rating D. From what I see on Internet some people upgrade these BIAS tires to radial tires in 145/80/12" or even 13" size. Can somebody share their experience? My trailer has newer leafless suspension. The trailer was sold in 2010 but built in 2009. Radials in 12 or 13 inches are way easier to find than 12" bias tires in LRD.

Update: the problem is solved. 2010 Jayco 1007 comes factory equipped with ST145R12 Load rating D. 5.30-12 should not be installed on this trailer.
