OP, you understand how the aspect ratio works right? 35*265 mm width = 92.75 mm sidewall height. 30*285 mm width = 85.5 mm sidewall height. The sidewall is shorter so the overall diameter is smaller so the tire must spin faster.
Yea I understand that, that's why I was so puzzled as how everyone could change their sidewall heights but nobody was talking about their speedometers.
