Tires are only 1.5% difference in diameter. You probably wont have any noticeable difference in your speedo. You could go up to 31x10.5x15 if you wanted to.

No...you did have change in speedo...but it was so minimal, that you didn't actually notice it...

I did this too and after testing it with my GPS, 265/75's make the speedo more accurate then 245/75's
