I'm no expert but i think:

the maximum rim size for uno is "5j while palio's wheel size is "6j ,so if he goes for this J size he will be in trouble.
correct me ishan if i'm wrong.

Still not clear .

What about 5.5j ?? I have seen 14" in UNO and i believe there's no 5j alloys in 14" so all 14" should be 5.5j or more.

The Palio and Palio S10 alloys are 14x5.5j. The one on the Adventure are 14x6j. Just thought I'd clarify.

As long as the 5.5J/6J alloy does not cause the tyre to rub the fenders, I don't see a problem.

Payam - Like I said earlier if the offset is correct & does not lead to fouling with either the inner arches or any other mechanical/moving part, I don't see a problem. Why don't you take rims off MF's car, fit them on the Uno & do a short test run?

The owner himself has already got 4set of gtx's wheels and he tried them a few times but he afraids of having problem after sometimes of using them on his car.but if you say there is no problem that will be a good news for him.

Hi guys i have tried the GTX mags on the uno with 175/75/14 tyres, it was not a problem. what i am worried is will 185/60/14 tyres touching the inside's due to the broad size. 175/60/14 tyre is the best fit but is not available.

Do you really need those sizes for a 45 bhp car?

Right now the 45bhp car might not need the tyre size , but i dont need the 145 size tyre, they are very unstable and no 13"mags are available in 98pcd as you well know.

If you are hell bent on alloys then go for the stock GTX alloys but control the width. 175 is an overkill too. Try checking if 165 width suffices in 14x5.5j rims. If you want to try 175 then get your car to me and we'll check if it works.
