I wouldn't go as far as back to the tall, stiff side walled michelins tho. Squealed like buggery.
I think you are right the 1600 GTV's had 155 SR 15.
For Michelins closest I could find was a 155 HR 15 XAS with a height of 630 mm / 24.8"mm and width of 155 mm from this site https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyr...in-xas-ff.html
for the https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/tyr...rato-ca67.html

If your steering box has just been rebuilt to as new condition sure, not the the steering box, otherwise the forces of the big wheels/tyres are causing the surrounding metal work around the steering box and idler to flex or the give/play in all the 6 steering tie rods is just is too much, may be they are not Lemforder tie rods as per original specs.
