I've run both 175/70-14 and 185/65-14 on my 4000Q's and 80Q's.   Both were
without the use of studs.  Unless you are going thru extreme snow a lot I
would opt for the 185/65-14; good compromise between function and handling.
The 175 are about $8 to $10 per tire less.

I had them in use in WI mostly but had use in a lot of blizzard conditions
out West in the Rockies.
Good luck
