I also find it funny how this went from "HELP! My floor tom sounds lower than my kick!" to "yer toms sound baaaaaaad..." Haha
Your 13" and 16" are tuned a 4th apart, at least that's what I'm hearing, and that is a nice interval, it sounds musical. The point is, all your toms should have nice and even intervals. :)

If I were to tune a tom configuration such as yours, I'd likely go for 10" D, 12" A, 13" E, and 16" B. That would be a 4th between every drum.
