Keeping your requirements in mind, I would suggest that you choose out of Yokohama Geolandar M/T+ or Maxxis MT-762 Bighorn.
Both these tyres are of Mountain-Terrain type and hence offer exceptional traction over mucky, rocky and other extreme terrains.
My personal recommendation would be Geolandar M/T+ considering the safety and brand reliability. however, even Maxxis would do the job.
If you go for a harder compound tyre, you get low rolling resistance. Which means, they are easy to spin at the cost of reduced grip. A softer compound will grip the road well at the cost of slightly reduced fuel efficiency. As the contact patch increases, the same thing happens; you increase grip and fuel efficiency reduces.
There are extremes on both ends of the spectrum; the key is to find a balance.
You've chosen a good tyre size for the upgrade but you could face problems with the increase in the overall diameter of the tyre. The speedometer and the odometer could also be affected. As you increase the width, you'll have to decrease the sidewall. 175/60 R14 will be closer to the stock tyre circumference but because of its weird combination, it's very rare tyre spec and not easy to come by.
I'd advise you to stick with the factory spec and choose a softer tyre to improve the grip and handling. Here are some options:
165/65 R14 Earth 1 is a very quiet tyre with grip levels better than the factory fit tyres.
175/60 R14 Yokohama C Drive is another one to consider for 175-section tyre.
Apollo Alnac 4G S would be a good tyre to begin with for your Optra Magnum. In case you want something better then Yokohama A- Drive AA01 would be a good tyre
Another good tyre , although slightly expensive, would be Hankook Optimo Me02 K424.
If you wanted performance oriented tyres then go for Yokohama S Drive or Bridgestone Potenza GIII.
Go for Yokohama Earth-1 as it offer better traction, handling and durability. The only advantage Apollo Amazer 4G life has that it offers longer tyre life, but at the cost of less grip and comfort.
Go for Apollo if your major concern is tyre life.
Apollo Apterra HLS would be a good tyre to begin with for your Innova. In case you want something better you can choose out of Yokohama C- Drive or Bridgestone Turanza AR20.
They both are pretty good tyres, you can't go wrong with either one of them but Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S would be recommended for unpaved ,rough and muddy roads.

Hello, I have a Beat Diesel LT model and already drive over 72K Kms, currently I am using Yokohama 175/65/R14 82H and now the replacement of tyre is due. Please suggest me the best fitted tyre for my car while I have a avg. monthly drive of 1200-1500 KMs in which 60% is in hilly area and rest in flat. Regards AshishRead More
You can go for MRF ZV2K. It offers good grip and long tyre life. You can also look at Yokohama Earth-1 tyre. It offers good performance, durability and handling. Apollo Alnac is also a good tyre that you can look at.
In case you are looking at tyres that offer better fuel efficiency then go for Ceat Fuel Smarrt or Bridgestone Ecopia EP150. Ecopia would be our recommendation here.
Since your driving is majorly on rough roads, you could look at buying Yokohama Earth-1 tyre or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. These tyres are quite durable and offer good handling.

Which is the best brand in tyres for city commute? and for occasional off-roading? I drive Tata Indigo Manza which has quite low ground clearance with 185/60 R15. Can I replace it with bigger/wider tyres? Will it improve ground clearance? Will it affect my ride? What are the trade-offs?Read More
Upsizing will not improve the ground clearance. This is because an increase in tyre width is accompanied by a strategic decrease in side profile height in order to maintain centre of gravity and diameter difference.
If you want better ride height then try using spacers in the shockers.
SInce you want tyres that are good for on as well as off-road, I'd say you go for Yokohama Earth-1 tyres. They are quite durable and offer good grip and comfort. Another option would be Bridgestone Turanza AR20.
Pirelli Cinturato P7 would be a very good tyre for your A4. It offers superior comfort and great traction over wet and dry surfaces.
If you want an economical option then you can go for Goodyear Excellence. You could also look at Continental Conti Sport Contact 5. It lies somewhere between Goodyear Excellence and Pirelli Cinturato P7.
If you are looking at performance oriented tyres then go for Yokohama Advan Sport.
