I found, IMHO, that the most reasonable, commonly available decent
tire for my 68 MGC was a 165/15 Michelen XZX. Its only "S" rated, but I
don,t plan on doing over 112 mph anyway. They fill the wheel wells up
quite well so I'm glad I didn't go any larger. You can spend a lot more
money if you want to or possibly find an "off brand" tire less expensive.
I saw Dunlop SP5s (I think) advertised by British Wire Wheel in CA, and a
mention of Avons by another owner. (see MG bulletin board MGC section of
MG WWW page for recent threads on MGC tires)
Good Luck, Be C ing you at Indy,
