Any going down in profile with stock rims is going to effect top speed, shift points, gas mileage, and speedometer readings. That a definite. I'm sure handling would be effected to, but couldnt say to what degree.

Putting a 50 series on those rims leaves a big hole in the fenderwell. We had a member that did it and wished he hadn't.
