Go with your stock size if u drive within the city....
Else if u are a highway runner then go for 165/60-13

buddy pehle to 195/45/r14 is not listed , vaise allowed rim size there says 5nhalf to 7. so i guess i'm within the limit.... i hope 32 psi wont cause the 30k(sob....) tyres to go bust should i decide to be a little adventurous someday with my ride... i think i'll try 28 psi again and definitely buy that foot pump...
cheers

I guess the rim size is according to width of the tyre......nothing to do with aspect ratio...
Its always best to follow that table....anyways if its working well for u anuj then well and good....!!!
