So it looks like a 175 70 16 is really close...but...not one major tire dealer carries that size...now what?....

Take a look at Austone ...It's called 175 / R/16 Black wall "Taxi Tire"
Highbinder got it from Universal Vintage tire co.. In Pa....

There web page is: universaltire.com

So far he really likes it...He has them on 2 of his bike....
He said it feels and handles like a motorcycle tire...

It does stand a little taller in the rear....
He's running 44 psi in them....

I hope this helps you...

I'm running the Austone on my 1500 GL, Have over 17,000 miles on it and good for another 15,000. I don't think the side walls are too stiff @36psi .
Take care
Be safe
