Best 13" Tires? And are skinny tires okay on stock rims?

So for my '92 Civic DX Sedan the manufacturer recommends 175/70R13 tires.

What would be the best tires for it?

I've read that low rolling resistance tires and skinny tires are good for fuel economy.

Michelin Defenders (LRR tires) are available at that size on tirerack for $320 with a warranty of 90,000 miles.

Cornell 1000's (Non-LRR, but skinner at 155/80R/13) are available at pepboys for $200 with a warranty of 40,000 miles.

Kumho Solus KR21's (155/80R13) are available at tirerack for $220 with an 85,000 warranty, but shipping would cost $40 more totaling $260.

+If I were to get the 20mm skinnier tires, would they be alright on the stock wheels, or would I need to buy new ones?
