Upsizing wheels from 14" to 15"

I've got nearly 3,000 miles on my Whitehawk 27DSRL with Rainier tires. As we are planning a 5,000-6,000 mile trip this spring/summer to Utah, I'm considering buying new tires. The present ones look good; would you replace before such a trip? My present tires are 205/75R14's. I'm looking at Maxxis M8008's or similar if I stay with the 14" wheels. What will I gain if I decide to replace the 14" wheels with 15" wheels? Have any of you gone this route and if so what wheels did you get? It would be nice to order tire and wheel already mounted and balanced. Thanks for any info.

Yes.

OEM tires do not have a good track record. We took a long trip in late 2015 with the OEM tires and I plan to replace mine in 2017 before the next long trip.
