Yes it'll affect your gearing, you're looking at an overall diameter difference of something like 13% from the standard 195/80R15s. You'll find you won't be able to crawl as slowly in 1st Low (not so good on really rough stuff) and it'll run out of power on the road more quickly in 5th (lower engine revs for the same road speed) so you'll find yourself changing down for hills more often Laughing . It'll also accelerate a bit slower but that doesn't matter so much.

Also be aware that for the same speedo reading you'll actually be going 13% faster than you are now, so watch out for those speed cameras!!!
