speedo calibration

I know the tire profile will make a difference, but will the speedo read more MPH's or less with the larger/taller wheels? Just a thought. I went from 16" rims to 17" last year, which were also alot wider than the stock rims. I found a profile tire which was 1/2 taller than the 16", and weighed the tires and rims at only a couple of lbs more than orig. Philip
