Torque is the reason I thought Verna had that size tires. Please go to indiacar.com -> buy new -> Hyundai motors india -> verna vgt. My petra has stock 175/65R14. I am referring to the red car with crashed wheels ? I feel those tires are at least 195 section width.

Ya u saw it right
Indiacar.com says Verna has 235/70-16 tyres but thats a mistake on their part...

The red car isn't a Verna its Accent CRDi...

ok to much confusion. the red car with the smashed alloys is the Accent CRDi whereas the golden car with the bonnet crumpled is the Verna VGT CRDi. The 175 is on the verna and yes they are very very skinny. Not only can they not handle the torque, they provide horrible handling and braking.

Thats what I was wondering. The couple of immediate posts after the red car pics made it seem like the red car is verna. Any ways, sorry about the confusion and thanks for clarity.
