You wouldn't want taller than that in a 175. My dad had 175/75/14s on his 245 once and said driving it with those tires on it was the scariest thing he'd ever done, saying you could just about read War & Peace in the time it took for the car to react when you turned the wheel going down the road at 45...

Meh, pump them up to 40+ psi(if rated for it) and install them on 6" or preferably wider wheels and call it good. If you can find some. Haha.

Andy, how wide are the GT wheels? 6" or only 5.5"?

I had 215/70/14 and it did great in the snow. A 60 series will be more responsive on pavement, but on my 79 245, 215/70/14s were not "scary" nor dangerous on the pavement.

I ran 185/80s on mine this summer and it wasn't strikingly bad imo.

I would moreso like to be saved. Salvation is a guarantee and a promise, 10" wide steelies are not, however..
