Back in the day, my CB175 came from new with Japanese Dunlop Gold Seal tyres, which were soft and gripped very well, even in the cold and wet. A definite step up from earlier Japanese tyres, which had no wet grip whatsoever.
I fitted these tyres to my CB175K4, for the period look, and they work fine in the dry. I haven't tried them in the wet, apart from a couple of miles in torrential rain on the way home from the MOT station last month.
These tyres are by Maxxis, although I reckon Chingshen ( rudely (and probably unfairly these days) nicknamed Cheap **** ) do some similar ones.
