New Tires and Speedo.

Hello all,

I recently had my tires and rims changed from OEM 215/60/16 to 245/65/17. I love my new tires and look, however I have a couple of questions...

1. The only way to recalibrate de Speedo (i have a 12.9% difference) is to have the Xcal (I dont have one)?
2. How is the unsprung (did i spell it ok?) weight Affecting my handling? This tires weight 10pounds more.
I've always described the suspension of the E soft, and the brakes mushy, but I dunno if there is anything else to worry about...

I looked this topic before asking...but instead of hijacking the thread, decided to start one new.

Thanks in advance!
