1971 250C Correct Tires?

Hello, I am looking for the correct tires - size and brand - for a 1971 250C for the stock 14" steel wheels with stainless hubcaps. Any advice is appreciated! Thank you!

The car currently has 205s on the later alloys added by the previous owner. Will these not be too wide?

I run 205-75r14 on my w108 with no issues. Very close to original bias ply in terms of diameter. I have Hankook on mine because one of the last to still make a white stripe.
