gear ratio and tires

I just pulled the trigger on some MB TKO's and a set of 235/75r15 duratrac's. I have a stock 2009 4x2 with current wheel's 215/70r15.

Does anyone no if I will need to change the gear ratio?
also how will this change/affect the handling/steering if any?

tires and rims already ordered and I want to be aware of any problems that may occur with the change when I have them installed.

JZ

Those tires shouldn't hurt your gears just your mpg's and throw your speedometer off some
