205/75R14s are 26.11" tall.

 

The 620 truck came with 6.50 X14 or today's...

 

P185/75R14.... 24.20"

P195/70R14 ....24.75"

P215/60R14.....24.16"

 

Are all withing 1/2" diameter so the speedo will be correct, only the width is different. The 205/75R14s are two inches taller. So at 50 MPH on the speedometer you are actually going 54.13 or over 8% faster than indicated.
