To be fair, I should mention that the larger wheels (aluminum rims) were actually heavier than the factory steel 13" wheels by about 8 pounds each.

Also, I found this calculator that will tell you how your speedo will misreport based on wheel size changes:

When I put had the larger 195 wheels on my car, my speedometer was slow by .02% (which I consider acceptable).
