It "technically" shouldn't. But....
the d-bag service manager at my dealership blamed a pad/rotor issue (which I had before my aftermarket wheels ) on the aftermarket wheels. They were kind enough to give me a 1 time pad replacement. But they said that was all they would do. Which didn't solve the issue as it was rotor related. And no, at that point I hadn't tracked the car, had any accidents, gone full lockup from high speed, or anything more than occasional "spirited" driving.

I ultimately upgraded the rear rotor and pads and that solved the issue.

As long as the tires you buy end up with the same revolutions per mile. Your speedo will be correct.
