If 14" then size should be 195/45 R14....N mostly u will get Hankook in this size..
Also the 14" rims should not be more than 5.5j as anything above this will make tyre scrape...

It looks really nice thats it, and yeah Grip is awesome too.
The 195s slightly stick out of the car abt 1/2 cm, and that looks really nice from behind as you can see the alloys rolling from behind or front when the car moves.

OT:
Why do u need 195 size tires for a 60+ bhp car?
The smarter thing is to invest on the esteem discs/brake booster for the proper braking .
