I guess the stock size is 195/60 R15. The kind of power the vehicle makes it is better you upgrade to 205/60 R15 Michelin pp2/ps2. They are very good.
If you are looking at a little lesser price one you can try hankook ventus rs2 or rs3
In costly ones you can look at Advan neovas, You cannot go wrong on the last one. But they might last around 25 k only.

Don't you think you are the best person to answer that? All you need to do is check what tyre the car has.

IO, the current Magnums are equipped with Apollo tyres, the older Optra's came with Goodyear NCT5s as OEM.

195/60R15 is more than sufficient for the Magnum as you are speaking of cost effectiveness.

I have upgraded to Michelins over Goodyear and done some 30k kms on them, I am pretty satisfied with the performance.
BTW I have an Optra 1.6 petrol.
Cheers,
Hari.
