I put 215-60-15s on a set of new BBS-RG 15x7s (single piece forged spec'd for Lexus ES300, same car) with great results. These replaced my 96 Camry SE-V6's original 205-65VR15s, providing a bit more handling without sacrificing any ride. The difference in height is negliglble (the "exact" "Plus Zero" size would theoretically be 225-60-15s, but they will not fit properly under the fenderwells. These 215-60s are not enough shorter to matter one bit and fall within acceptable "replacement" parameters. As a nice compromise between your current 14s and my solution, I would at least go to the original equipment Camry LE, SE and XLE V6 size of 205-65-15. Had I not been able to locate such a great deal on the BBSs in the 15x7 size, I would have been very tempted to got Plus One to 215-55-16. By the way--for all 92-96 Camry owners--esp driving enthusiasts--the traditional (complex cross-spoke) BBS wheel look does wonders for what is basically a pleasant but somewhat boring/conservative Camry design. Good luck.
