    How much difference in tire size? (265's vs 285's) Is just the width of the tread? I have the stock 265-65-17's now, if I move up to 265 or 285-70-17's (65's to 70's) how will my speedo and odo be affected?.......thanks

    With bigger tires the speedo will read slower than you are traveling. (Ex: Your speedo says 65 but cops radar says 70 ;) )
