    will always be a good option as long as it does not void the warranty. You want to make the excellence of both 15" and 14"

    @KKAUL If we upgrade the tyres will that void warranty? I didn't know this....

    Also i had option of upgrading to 195/60r15 with steel rims
    now am thinking of 195/70r14 with stock rims
    Which one is better

    @Pradeepms
    Stick to the OEM specs for 14" or 15". If you try to use your own spec then it will definately void your warranty. It can be clearly understood suppose their spec is 195 65 r 15 or 185 70 r 14. If you try to calculate the volume of air and weight of the tyre will be more or less same where as in 195 70 r15 it will be more than both the specs hence failure of wheel bearing ,axle or worst steering rack will be high.
    as far as 15" is concerned better to use alloy for lower weight reasons same as above.

    Fiat provides 195/60 R15 for Emotion varient. It's not perfect as in 60 profile is not that secure when it comes to protecting the rims from potholes and speed bumps, however the ride quality is not compromised, I have driven a car with 195/65 size tires, not a difference, just that my friend is a frequent traveler to Mangalore so he wanted something which can secure his rims.
