I can't specify a model, but the best TD size I've found is 165SR15. This
puts you into a radial, rather than the original bias ply, but I've found it
did wonders for my TD's roadholding.
By the way, I use a modern Dunlop model # SP-4. In my area they're readily
available at around $50 per tire.

Can someone recommend a specific Michelin model and size for the MG-TD?
I know the TD is supposed to take the same tire as a VW Beetle, but the
tire dealer's book only lists the Super Beetle (whatever that is). And by
way, what will the proper tire pressure be for the new tires?
Thanks in Advance.
