I cant even find a 175/80/14 on tirerack(largest seller of tires)

you want to look at a tire w/ an LRR rating (low rolling resistance)

you also dont want to go below the weight rating.

Fundamentally, there is relatively no difference in a slightly narrower tire, and you would not want a REALLY narrow tire. Not safe.
