Question 1976 Mb 240d Tires

Currently I have Michelin 185 SR14 tires on my 240D, which I bought 2 weeks ago! Tire Rack only has this and Yokohama Y356. OE tires were 175/14. Can any one suggest tires or what you are using? Thanks!

Wow, they still sell those tires? It doesn't show up in the search. I have 205/70-14 tires on the car now. They are oversize which makes the odometer run slow but they work fine.
