Going to 14" and such a low profile for the Zen is something I wouldnt recommend. It is totally pointless unless your Zen is putting out 150 bhp!

What brands are available in the size 195/45 r14 ? I have only seen Hankook ventus k102.
I am also looking at 185/60 r13. Are these size available in Michelin or Yokohama ?

You mean here in India? I have seen Yokohama a539's on Zens but not sure if it was the above mentioned sizes. Can someone confirm if these sizes are available in a539's and also where can i find them in Mumbai?

Yoko is not officially importing 195/45 R14. So, if you have seen it, it is from the grey market.

Guys i want to upgrade my tires..
now i am getting 165/70/12 instead of 165/60/12
below is the tire size calculator:

Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference
145/80-12 4.6in 10.6in 21.1in 66.4in 954 0.0%
165/70-12 4.5in 10.5in 21.1in 66.3in 956 -0.2%

will it be fine for shockers and ride quality and also will it affect the fe ??

165/70 R12 is non existent in the market. Your only option is 165/60 R12 or 155/70 R12.
