question about new wheels/tires

i replaced my 15x?s with 205/60/x on them (OE) for 17x8.5 with 225/45/17s

yeah the entire wheel and tire is a bit bigger. will this throw off my speedometer and odometer? if so, how can i re-calibrate them? (i have had very little experience with rims and tires)

if you need any additional info please ask. thanks!

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
The difference will be 9 rpms per mile, a 1.2 % increase. Not worth worrying about.

If you would like to know what changing tires will do, try this site. It's a Miata site, but good info. www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html.

Do you know of a site that tells what size will fit? Spefically the offset. I'm thinking about getting rims with the following & wonder if they will fit without any spacers, mods etc...
SIZE: 17 x 8.5
BOLT PATTERN: 5 x 120
OFFSET: 40mm

Have you tried www.tirerack.com? They recommend wheels and tires for your car. And at one time, guaranteed fitment. Check their website.

i like them alot. the only problem is that since they are a larger diameter than my old tires, they raised the height of the car a bit. oh well, guess i'll just have to lower it
