JRL is trying to show you that you did not move to the correct tire
size if your speedometer is off. Your speedometer was calibrated for
the area your vehicle was sold in and with the size tires it came
with. To change tires you had to compensate somewhere or your
speedometer will be off.
Ex. If you had a 205/70/15 then you would replace it with 205/50/17.
Try these in the website and see what I am saying. Notice the outside
diameter of the tire stays relitively the same while on the wheel size
Hopefully it is not too late for you take the tires back and exchange
them for the correct new size. The only other way I know is to change
the gear in the transmission but everyting is done electronicaly
