I just recently purchased a set of BBS RZ 17' wheels and they came with 215/40 tires. After reading the posts on tire size I realize that I should have got 225/35 tires. I placed the stock tire next to the new ones and the stock ones are about half an inch smaller.

How will effect my car? Will the speedo be off? I also had to get spacers so the new tires are wider than the stock ones. How will this effect my handling?
