I side with Denise (and a few others) on this one. While driving (especially as high RPMs and around long curves) remember that not all of the oil stays in the sump. It's only when it all drains back

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
