I have just gone from 185 70 14 to the original size 165s. I had some Kumho 185 s on it, and before that some Michelin XAS. I expected lighter steering on the 165s. What I got was much more feel through the steering, improved ride, it just feels altogether much better on them. So I’m voting 165s. There is a choice, you don’t have to buy the classic tyres, at least in the UK there are modestly priced 165 80 14.
