Update : up to 45,000 miles now (started at 17K), no issues with the 175s. I have been using it for uber and delivery (doordash etc), so more than a normal driver.
I had to replace the fronts as they wore out within 15k miles. The replacements were still less than $30 but a different brand.
Overall it was fine. I ended up using more for delivery because when the car is full of passengers it can be a real slug. Deliveries (for me) tend to make more money. Also the rear shocks are very weak I would suggest replacing them with something more heavy duty.
I did not receive any complaints and it would do really well in more of a downtown area where the trips are short.

Some random side notes after reading the thread.
175/65/14 is a half inch taller tire. As such your speedo and MPG will read 2.5% lower than actual.
And you should really chalk test your tires. It fine and dandy to run a higher psi up front, but don't match it out back. I check tread depth on every groove every 8000km. While the front wears close to evenly at say, 40psi, the rears with NO wright on them, will wear the centre out long before the shoulders ever see pavement. With only a few hundred pounds on each tire, they should be 3-5 psi lower than the front for even wear and full tread contact.
After 16000km between rotations, my rears were at 8/32, 6/32, 6/32, 8/32 across each channel.
MPG is fun, but keep it safe and make sure the tire still sits flat on the road. I run my Mirage at 38F, 33R. That's where it wears evenly. Look up chalk testing tires.
With no weight pushing the rear tires flat, they balloon at higher psi's and wear centre first.
And with no weight on the rears, that's not where your economy savings came from with higher PSIs anyway!
