Researching tires yet again, it seems like there are a couple of new options out there. Anyone tried these?

Upgrade to the 15X7" Bundt alloy wheels and use a 205/65VR15. Many members have done this. Makes a huge difference. Still retains the original look, and you have to do a double take to see what in the heck looks different.

Slightly off topic but any suggestions for replacement of 195/70R14 tires for an 85 euro 280E? I have Pirelli P4's on it now and don't see hardly any replacement tires in this size. This is becoming more and more of a problem as time passes.

Are you specifically looking for H speed rated tires?

Maybe these?

This year in Essen Techno Classica I saw many showroom cars fitted with the Maxxis MA-1 whitewall tires.
