The old saying is "You can't tell a book by its cover." There is a diference in ride characteristics between your three preferred tire sizes... and they are dependent upon your car's suspension set up (Is it stock height or already lowered? Stock, cut or after market springs? Etc.) and how you intend to drive your car.

When you say 185/70 is "too much tire" I assume you refer to it fitting the wheel well too much and not that it is too wide or too much rubber for the cars set up, since you are leaning to 195s. I have 185/70s and 14x6 wheels and they look perfect to me, and provide the ride/handling characteristics I want. I've had wider tires, and while they looked more agressive, they ruined the cars nimbleness and feel I wanted from a vintage classic. But thats my preference and up for endless dabate. Hope this is helpful and good luck.
