No I am sure. The speedos convert the rpm of the wheel (using a hall effect sensor or somthing like that) to km travelled.

one rpm = 2*3.14*rolling radius

So as long as your rolling diameter remains same, there shouldnt be a problem.

Now I have few things
1. What if, I go for 14" and I donot bother the incorrect odo...? My concern is mainly with vehicle dynamics. I donot want to see any problem with the vehicle.

If I want to go for 14" and have no issues with incorrect odo ( I know even speed shown is less than actual)...
My real concern is with respect to vehicle dynamics, ride, handling etc.

kanni,as i told you you will have no problem in getting 14r,no need for recaliberate,no issue in your car's dynamic.just choose the right upsize and enjoy the ride.
i dont know the new palio's stock size but if its same as old one the best options are:
185/65
185/60
195/60
i am running on 195/60r14 ,i am telling you car is flying.

Increase the rim size and reduce the type thickness (Rim end to ground distance) and have better ride. Am I correct ?

no.. if you reduce the distance from the end of the rim to the ground the ride will become worse.

Why dont u get a set of tyres on your stock rims itself...?? which means No issue of getting 98PCD alloys n u wont get much choice in market either....

I would recommend u 185/70-13 tyres(good ones) on stock rims......U wont loose the good ride quality of the stock tyre setup also.....n with good set of tyres like Potenza GIII, Energy XM1 or Turanza ER60 which will improve the grip levels....

Aura is also available in 98PCD. It looks decent enough and is quite durable. I have it on my Palio. You can try asking the dealer to give it for free
