    My 1978 Datsun had 15" wheels by 8" and I used low profile tires like 225/50 R15 you should not raise the suspension because that will make the lower control arms normally horizontal point down ward that will cause positive rear camber and tire tread to wear unevenly as the suspension moved up and down.
