"26x1.75" is a mountainbike designation. It refers to the 559 ERTRO wheel size. Assuming you mean a Giant FCR3, that frame uses road-standard 700c wheels.

As to whether you could fit a 44mm (1.75") wide tire to an FCR3? I very much doubt it. That was a flat-bar road bike. Can't recall if it had caliper or v-brakes, but either way I be very surprised if the frame and/or fork clearance would allow a 44. 32mm maybe, 35mm possibly, but 44? Don't think so.
