    Tire size

    Have a 5x8 landscape trailer with 13 inch rims I have a new spare 14 inch rim with 205/?75/14 I wonder if i should buy one more tire and rim to have a set and replace the 13 inch tires/rims with the bigger 14 inch tires/rims It is same bolt pattern and i can adjust the fenders I think will look better Now is there a negative side?

    I'd go with the 14" tires, as long as they don't contact the fenders while the trailer is loaded.

    The 14 inch tire will raise the bed maybe an inch or so.

    Be very careful when you load it with a "full skid of topsoil, concrete, mulch". I've lost track of how many of those light duty trailers I've seen abandoned on the side of the road with a broken axle or spindle from being way over loaded. It's been something over a dozen. Do not exceed your recommended maximum load rating.

    The trailer seems " jumpy" for the same reason basketballs bounce. A larger diameter tire may help reduce that jumpyness a bit, but don't expect much. The larger diameter wheel/tire will put more of a bending moment on the spindle and axle, but since the new tire/wheel is very little bigger there won't be much more added stress.
