Are you on the original wheels? These would be 6J x 14, with 185/60 R 14 82H tyres, quite likely originally fitted with Michelin MXV2. My 92 GTII still has the original MXV2s on the rear and I had two NOS MXV2s fitted on the front to match last year. If you wanted to fit new Michelins, both XM2 and Energy Saver+ are available in this size.

Buy the best tyres you can, they are the only thing in contact with the road.
I can recommend the Goodyear Efficient grip performance for an A rated tyre which is quiet and grips very well in the wet for just over £50 each.
