DWIND - Since you're using a bigger tyre reduce the pressure to 28 psi and see if the ride is satisfactory. I'm using the same pressure with the same size tyres on my OHC too.

Go for Michelin XM1+ if you want to keep 14". 195/60R14. Really great tyres. Costed me about 3900 almost a year or so back.

195/60 R14: GC will decrease by 5.5mm, speedo error 1.8%, reduction in GC is a concern.
185/65 R14: GC will decrease by 2.3mm, speedo error 0.7%,

What u say abt that??

Singhal, can you elaborate what is the stock size on your car? I have a 2008 Verna VGT SX, and it came with 185/65 R14 as standard. Is it something different on your car?

As for the brand of tyres, try out Bridgestone B250s in 185/65 R14 size. These came as OEM with my car, and proved to be reliable, silent and grippy in wet conditions. I tend to be a fast driver, and they have taken whatever punishment I've dished out. So good, that I've retained them even after switching to alloy rims.

The top model of Verna with alloys come with 185/65-14 tires and rest of the models come with 175/70-14 tires.

EDIT: Typo corrected.

There is big range of tyres in yokohama, so getting confused.

Which one you suggest would be good for performance and comfort both?
