I will be looking at 175/65r14 Michelin Defenders, from tire rack, for my replacement tires.

Thank you,
Try more throttle, just keep RPM down. I use at least half throttle and upshift around 2000 RPM. As long as the tires aren't cracking, they should handle more pressure. I run my worn tires at around 55 PSI.
