Hello,

The Tyre height will increase from 22.4 Inch to 24.2 Inch in the given context
Even the width increases from 6.5 Inch to 7.3 Inch

This makes it Tyre scraping in wheels and will impact mileage, handling of car in a big way
Not recommended

You can put 175/65 R14 tyre in grand i10, as this size is a very easily available, the other size 185/60 R14 is not so readily available by all manufacturers. So if you put 185/60 R14 tyre and any one of the tyre need replacement due to some accident then getting the right tyre size will become difficult. So better to put 175/65 R14 tyre. Also the United Kingdom varient of this vehicle use 175/65 R14 tyres.
I myself have put this tyre size after lot of research, and staring doesn't feel any heavier than before, but the car feel more better to drive after the upsize.
