Default Tubeless radials in Amby's size

I'm looking for 165R15 or 165/80R15 tubeless radials for my VW beetle. This is the same size as Ambassador. Is there any supplier of these. I know Toyo makes this size, but not sure if I can get them in Bangalore. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Byas

You do have the Bridgestone B800 available in 165/80 R15 & it is a tubeless radial (I think).

Also, I'm sure there are more options available in MRF/JK/Ceat/Apollo etc.

IIRC, 195/60/R15 is what Rudra uses.

Thanks! Looks like only tubed choices in that size. Are Toyo tires sold in India? They do have 165/80R15 tubeless.
