On the 13' side I would have 3 cans-- I centered at 6'6" and the other 2 would be 4' from center on both sides. Hold them off the parallel wall about 3'- 3'6" depending where you want the light

do the same across the room.

^^^ I would also do this. Was always told not to go much more than 6' between recessed lights

30" off the side walls would put them 6' apart

That's why I went to 36" since I would rather be 5' about or a bit less.
