MGB's use the same size, so there should be some options out there.
These are inexpensive Nankang tires.
I have 185/70-14's on Rostyles on my 2000TC and they have not rubbed
anywhere with the limited use it has had so far. I have not had a load
in the back as James talks about. So far I have straight links in the
rear suspension, but have some kinked ones to go on when I replace the
bushings. I think I chose 185/70 to get close to the diameter of
165/80. They are Dunlop SP20's which I believe are obsolete now.
I have 165-80-15 tires by Kumho on another car, and they seem to be good
tires. I don't find a 165-80-14 in their line, but they do make
185/70-14. Do a search for that size at Tire Rack. Like the Nankangs
(maybe the same company), they are under $40 each before shipping and
