Yes it will mess a few things up. You distance travelled will change as well as your speed, so the speedo/ odometer will need recalibration to match what you put on the vehicle, you must also make sure the wheel offset is correct or you could windup with a vehicle that won't move cause the wheels hit the brake calipers or they stick out from under the fenders cause the offset went the wrong way. Your best bet is to find a good tire and wheel shop, they can answer all your questions and maybe able to get you just what you want.


That may also hurt your fuel mileage


If you use the correct diameter 17" tires everything will work correctly as long as they clear the brakes.
