We have MB wheels on our Coupe and have fitted Uniroyal Rain Experts. 195x60x15 - not sure if they would fit the wire wheels though, you may have to go narrower.

Ah so now I know who backpain is now and yep 165/80/15 is what was originally fitted though a 185/70/15 is possibly easier to obtain, I putting 165/15 continental CT22, classic in looks and not too expensive
