No doubt the tire you had was a Michelin XZX that is no longer made in the
175 size.

The best substitute is the Michelin XAS in 180-15 size which I recently
fitted to my 100.  It is a wonderful, if expensive, tire and offers good
roadholding plus great esthetics as its dimension properly fills the wheel
opening.  Also you will gain a bit more ground clearance--always a nice
thing in a Healey!

I believe that Coker Tire is the only US source.
