no it's the same speed DiamètreCirconférenceTolérance sur le diamètrepneu d'origine 275/35/21725.9 mm2280.48 mm±5.78 mmnouveau pneu 285/30/22729.8 mm2292.73 mm+3.9 mm OK
Le diamètre de la nouvelle monte est théoriquement conforme à l'originale. Il faut encore vérifier l'indice de charge et de vitesse et si le constructeur a homologué cette monte pour votre véhicule.

You are correct. If overall diameter doesn’t change then neither will my references regarding final drive ratio. Sorry I didn’t shift gears from the truck forum discussions where the guys lift the truck to put bigger wheels on to add larger tires.
