Default Should I regap my plugs???

I installed a set of Autolite 104'* gapped at .055 about 4 days ago. The computer at Walmart showed the stock range to be a 605, so I went with the 104s. After checking Autolite'* website, the stock plug is a 606, so I'm two ranges colder than stock, and gapped .005 bigger than I should be.

My question is:
Will it be worth the trouble to pull them back out and regap, or will they be just fine? Is the preformance going to suffer from the additional gap, and will there be negative consequences? Or will they be fine the way they are?

Kinda what I thought. I figured a bigger gap wouldn't hurt, but a smaller gap might cause some problems.
