The axle will still be mounted below the bottom flange of the chassis so the ground to stub axle dimension will not change. Owing to the aspect ratios of suitable tyres there may be no gain or even a loss of height by changing from 14" to 15" wheels!!.

As an example:
185 x 14 radius 12.8"
195/60 x 15 radius 12.1 " .......a loss of 0.7"
195/70 x 15 radius 12.9"....... a gain of 0.1"
205/65 x 15 radius 12.7"........a loss of 0.1"
