Hi,
Going for R14 would be better for better clearance for tyres. If willing for higher rating tyre then nothing wrong in going for R15.

You can go in for 195/60-15. But the problem will be, when your speedo reads 100kms/h you will be travelling at 108 kms/h. So a speedo error shows a odo error. And this will also reduce your tyre profile, and this will not be suitable for our Indian conditions. You can try 195/65-14. And I suggest you to go in for Michellin ot conti cause these two tyres are silicon mixed tyres. The advantages of these tyres are it has a low rolling radius and you can maintain the same fuel cost.
