Your choice; You can opt for either:

13" wheels; Tyres 175/60 R13
14" wheels; Tyres 175/65 R14

When selecting rims, make sure the dealer mounts them first without the tyres on in order to check if the ET is correct in order not to hit the front disc brake callipers.

As I have mentioned before, on 13", you will need an ET of below 38 whereas on the 14" it could go to 40. PM me if you have any more specific questions.

1. "EinpressTiefe" or "ET" Value

The distance between the rim's center line and its mounting surface.

2.
13" Pros: better and comfortable ride due to higher height of the side wall of the tyre. Cons: Looks not as good as 14" and a very tiny bit more flexing of the side walls if you are into high speed racing, etc and thus tyre life will decrease.
14" Pros: looks better and the same reason as cons for above.
Cons: Bumpier ride due to lower height of the side wall. Also due to lower side wall height, if you go fast through bad roads, you run a risk of damaging the alloys.

Frankly, these are theoretical and do not make too much of a difference between 13 & 14". They come into play if you plan to go to 15" or above in your case.

keralshobhit,
In my experience and to add to what Tejas@perioimpl said, the 14" can get a little bumpy. While one could reduce the tyre pressure to counter this, it will reduce your fuel efficiency. The Hyundai recommended 33 psi is what gives this car its mileage especially if you have an automatic transmission.

My i10 has 14" and I am extremely happy with them but I got them only by chance as my first choice was 13".

That's a good looking i10 with her new shoes. How much did it cost to you?

9.8 k for the new alloys
9.2 k for the new tires
got a 4k buy back for 4 stock tires with rims. One was BALD BALD and other 2 had a puncture each so, guess i got a decent deal. Should have done the upsize when I had bought the car itself.
Anycase, money well spent even now. These tires are very silent. Dare I a say, somewhat as silent as the michelin XM1+ on my frnd's i10.

That's indeed a wise decision. Thanks for sharing the information.

I finally got what I needed. Happened to walk into this accessory showroom and there was this i20 alloy wheel. The shop had a brand new set someone dumped for a 15" aftermarket.

I got Yokohama 185/60 R14 mounted on to those and fitted on my i10 Auto.

Perfect fit. Same circumference and no odo error. Great handling and sober refined looks. I wonder why I did not think of it earlier.

Now to cost - 10 k for 5 alloys and 15 k for 5 Yokos. 6.5 k buyback for old wheels.
