Tire,wheel combo choice ?

For a Chevy '31 2dr sedan with MII,&350/350. Weight should be 1575 F&R.
I have seen lots of combos.
Here is what I am thinking. F-195/65-14,24.5" tall, R-235/70-15,27" tall .
The rear tire size gives me a full filled well which looks good. That is the size I have on the rear now for the build but they are very old and need new tires.
On the front I have some 14" lowprofile tires that are also old and need replacing.
I want to raise the front because I think my Xmember is to close to the ground, 3" clearence and I would like to get it up a little. I will accomplish this with the proper springs(the ones I have on it now were cut to much and my lower A arms are an inch to high. T stance of the car looks good to me now and won't look that much worse with taller tires on the front.
I think the front well needs to be filled up a littel more.
Should I go to 15" on the front to get a better look with the same 195/65 tire

IMO, the front could use a little taller tire.
