larger tires?

I have a '04 Grand Limited 4x4. Could anyone advise if I would have a problem going to a 245/70/17 tire size (gearing, speedo change)? I would be replacing the factory 235/65/17 and hopefully gaining about an inch.

i've been looking into this also and have yet to find a truck tire wider than 235 for a 17" wheel. let me know if you have found something that will fit. at this point i'm planning on going down to a 16" wheel to get some larger tires.
