Best Civic VX Tires

Its time for tires for my VX. I've been running
Kumho Solus TA11 175/70R13 82T for the past 60k miles or so. They seemed decent. I average about 38 city 45 hwy

Shopping at tires easy I see there is a tire in factory size available Achilles 122 165/70R13 79H. It has a crappy wear rating but higher speed rating compared to anything in a 175. Will the factory size improve things?

Also there is a Hankook Kinergy ST H735 175/70R13 82T which has a higher max pressure and a good wear rating but not available in the stock size.

I am leaning towards the Hankook. But I am curious on your thoughts on the advantages of putting 165's on the car even if the tire is not as good?

Thanks, John
