I bought my 71 MGB GT 2 years ago and it came with TOYO Spectrum
tires, size 185-70-14.
I am very pleased with the performance of these tires.
When I will replace the TOYO's I will probably look for a Dunlop tire
in the correct size, just because!
I run Dunlop tires on my TR6 and am also very pleased with their performance.
I notice that Dunlop has a few models in the 185-70-14.
