MG C Tires
Often with cars like an MG C people think a bigger tyre will improve the car. If that had been the case MG would have fitted a bigger tire. Low profile wide tyres came out in 1968 long before the MG C ceased production, and the could have fitted a 185/70VR15, but they didn't. However if you do want a bigger tire on your car then fitting a period tyre with a carcase that is designed for such a job will diminish the handling deficiencies that oversized tires bring.185/70VR15 Pirelli Cinturato CN36 is the perfect tyre for the job. It's rounded shoulders will maintain the progressive handling while at the same time giving a wider tyre that some people think they want.
