yup by increasing the aspect ratio you are increasing the diameter and hence the circumference of your tyres too so for every revolution of the wheel you will go just that little bit further than before so if your speedo is reading 75mph you will actually be doing near 75mph on your gps.

stock wheels and tyres for my truck are 285 45 19 on the rear and 255 50 19 on the front
