I'm trying to show up smallers roads like service, path etc on smaller zooms like <10.

Using mapbox and default sources is impossible i think..

  [zoom<13]{line-width:1; line-color:red}

There is any possibility to do it?

If Mapbox Studio's default (vector tile-backed) data source doesn't include small roads at z13, then you have a handful of choices:

  • Set up your own rendering stack: explains how to set up a traditional raster renderer
  • Contact an alternative commercial supplier such as Thunderforest, who may be able to supply different vector tiles
  • Create your own vector tiles with a utility like Tilemaker, which has the detail you want at these zoom levels, and serve them

"and serve them", how i can import it as source to mapbox studio?

I believe you can specify a custom tile URL using the 'Change source' option in Mapbox Studio. If you are hosting your own tiles, you will need to serve the tiles to this URL. The mbtileserver.rb tool in Tilemaker is a simple example of how to do this.

If all of this sounds like gobbledegook, it might be worth you contacting either Mapbox or Thunderforest to see if they can meet your needs.
