got new tires

just fitting some BFG's all terrain on my jeep. Stock jeep, no lift, 4cyl engine. Question: does running these bigger tires make my speedo off? it takes me forever to get to 65 on my speedo, i think going 65 is acually about 73? running 265x15 on my 16 inch rims. I believe.

It does throw it off a bit. I'm running 31's, no lift , 2.5l engine, and my speedo is off by about 5 mph. I tested this by using a gps app on my phone. The speedo was about 5mph slower than what the gps said.
