What's the difference between 215/70/R14 and 205/70/R14 tires...?

Just wondering what the difference the larger number has in terms of having a tire put on the car... Does it affect speedometer reading, mileage, etc?

The first number is the tread width. The second is the percentage of width the sidewall is. So the 215 70 is one size wider and slightly taller than the 205 70. The height may not be noticeable tho.
