Change to radials

Have 2011 Jayco Hybrid Ultralight X17Z.

Current tire size is ST185/80 D13.

Want to change to Radials ... ST185 80 R13.

Is this OK ?

What is the load range of the tire you are going to use?

Yes, I don't see why not. Being a 2011 I'm puzzled that it doesn't have radials now. It should have been delivered with radials.

There should be a label on the front left side that will have information as to what size tires should be on the TT

agree, they should already be radials. I would check the sticker on the trailer for the recommended size before changing anything.

There was a recent thread on this. I personally did a lot of searches on various forums. It appears the the issues are with Towmax 15" ST tires. Other sizes, especially the 13" don't appear to be a problem. But, yes, if I was looking to replace old tires, I'd be looking at the better brands.
