15" will give you more distance per each rotation of the tire compared to the 14"

you can get nearly the same diameter and width on the tires but taller wider tires are harder to find in 14". If you can find the right diameter and tread width in the 14" for your set up run em.

an even better idea would be to find some sweet 16" racing wheels..then you have all kinds of tire choices.
