Question Bigger tires affect Odometer?

I know bigger tires effect speedometer, but how about the Odometer? Will the trip gauge actually show less milage than I drove? Seems like some of the routes I used to take to work and such were slightly more milage than my odometer/trip gauge shows.

yup, I went from a 265 to a 285, and for every 100 miles my odometer shows, my actual distance was 107 miles.

The 4lo.com calculator showed 107.5mph actual with 100mph speedo-reading entered, with the tire upgrade from 265 to 285.

I changed from 225's to 32's (both on 15" wheels) to lately 295's on 16" wheels. My odometer reads 171K+ but having computed the size differences over the years I know it's about 183K+. The odometer fraud thing while true would really only benefit people closing in on their warranty and/or wanting to sell their vehicle.
