You could run into front brake clearance problems too,depending on the size of the discs on your car.
14's run 185/65
15's run 195/65

The clearance between the inner of the rim and the caliper is very tight on the 14's

When changing wheel size you always try to keep the radius within 2.5% and the difference between these to sizes is 6.05% so when your Speedo reads 70mph your actual speed will be 65.77mph
