Welcome to tbhp yamdoot.
If you change the aspect ratio of your tires (70->80) you wold have a error of almost 6% where the odo and speedo will show 6% less kms and speed respectively that you are actually clocking (with respect to the stock tires).
You will add 14-15mm in ground clearance because of increased overall radius of the wheel.
145/75 R12 may be a better option as far as the error is concerned (less than 3% in that case).
Others can tell you about any benefits of going from 70->80 in terms of ride and handling.
