This is an update and a Thank You to all those who responded in Sept to my
questions about stiff steering and tire sizes on the Rover 2000.

I had 6 responses regarding tire sizes:
Two for 185-70/14
Two for 175-75/14
One for Dunlop D65 Touring 175-70/14
One for Michelin MX4 175R14

On Tuesday, I had a set of 4 Continental Sigma Shadow 175-70/14 tires fitted
and WOW, I now have (almost) one-finger steering.  What a difference new
tires make.  All the stiffness has gone and the Rover is now lighter to
steer than my '65 Austin Cambrige.

Thanks again for all your help.
