Any change in tire size affects your speedo. Installing bigger tires shouldn't affect your computer, i upped by 2" and the dealership said it was fine.

To know your actual speed, you can use a portable gps unit. Then when you drive, mentally add or substract from the indicated speed.

When I went from the stock 235 to a 265 mine was off 5 mph. I corrected it by going with a different rear axle gear. I had 3.55 stock and now have 4.10 it is dead on now
