    I don't think 195/65/R15 will void the warranty as in my Linea the spare tyre they provided was 195/65/R15. Its a supported one.
    You can go with Michilen Primacy 3ST. its a bit expensive compared to others but you wont regret.

    Thanks a lot all for your valuable inputs. I have 15" linea steel rims with wheel caps. I will go with Michelin primacy 3st if my budget allows else I will go Yokohama earth1 for my punto

    @Pradeepms I have 195/60 on my Punto and my friend's Punto too came with 195/60. I had GT3 and he got Apollo tires.
    He got his Apollo tires changed in a week to Yoko tires with 196/65.

    195.65.15 Perfect profile for Punto. my punto have ran for more than 50K Kms on this profile.Currently running on 205/65/15,till now more than 50K Kms,gives more water bed comfort.At full load, 205.65.15 scraps inner fender of the wheel, whenever car goes on speed bumps.

    I recently changed my punto tyres to micheline primacy 3st(195/60/R15), as mentioned by vishi, you never regret your decision if you are taken this. Breaking, wet grip is very good.

    I have a 76hp and the other car which I was referring to is 90 hp.
    Ideally emotion variant earlier (76/90) both came with same size wheels, only on EVO (Emotion 76/ 90) we see a change....
    195/70 if you ask me is too big and yes you will enjoy a good ride but will have massive roll which will result in dip in FE and slightly a harder steering if you ask me.
    If I can suggest, 185/60 R14 should be good.
