I am running Vredenstein 185 X 70x r15 on my BN7. Also using 72 spoke rims and inner tubes.
When I needed tires 8 + years ago I did not find any satisfactory 165's readily available. As a "barn find" in your neighborhood of Los Altos, the car had 25 year old 165 Pirelli Cinturados
With tubes. Tried to replicate but no luck. I don't recall what Coker was offering back then but I seem to think nothing that would work.

I'm currently researching an article on tires for the Austin-Healey magazine. Would people who are not currently using the original size tires (5.90/15 and 165/15) please tell me what tire size you are using and on what wheel width, and why you chose not to use the original size wheels and tires?

Thanks for the information.
