    Smaller tires (nearest to the stock size) = better fuel economy+less grip on the road
    Wider Tyres = fuel efficency is a bit decreased+better grip

    and as far as good and economical is concerned then Dunlop takes the edge over Yokohama.

    I have given you an outline
    rest the choice is yours
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    go for yoko Db 185-70-13 , for best mileage with grip and soft steering.
    or u can go to 195 but i must say, putting 14' rim means u have to compromise on profile, get it like 65 which will be less comfortable in comparison to 70, so choice is urz,
    dunlop leman 702 tires are also gud and soft, they are gud too for smooth ride.

    my friend got 195 60 R14... and they look pretty awesome... 185 65 and 195 60 are ideal sizes for R14 rims... so just pick any one of them... and they will do the trick... ... as far as the fuel economy is concerned it wont be affected ...

    Economy WOULD be effected for sure... i ve been usin 195s on my city for a year, they give excellent grip and looks, but the economy wasnt as good as its now on 185s.

    I've Michelin Energy Saver in my Honda City 2005 175-65-R14. This is by far the best tyre I've ever had. It is very economical, with the best road grip. I get over 19Km/L with full A/c on my occaissional trips to Islamabad while the road grip is excellent. This tyre is a bit expensive than others like Yoko or Dunlop but once you use it, I'm sure you will never regret buying it.
