TT tire size question

I was reading on the forum of some TTs having a problem with very little clearance between the tires and the wheel wells so I decided to check out mine. When I was checking, I noticed that the previous owner had put on tires that are larger than the tires that are listed on the sticker that is on the trailer. The sticker says ST175/80R 13C. The tires are ST205/75R 14. The clearance right now at the top of the tires is about 2". Is this going to cause a problem with the tires rubbing against it or any other problems with having a different size tires than what was originally on it ? The tires are fairly new so I don't want to change them unless I have to.

I only have about 2 inches (actually a little less) and have not had any problems. I still check often though because it doesn't seem like enough. Have traveled 16,700 miles and will put on another 4500 this summer.

Hard to believe your MicroLite 23LB came from the factory with 13" tires. I thought they would have been 14" standard. Is the sticker correct? Maybe others with that model can comment.
