Should I jump on a deal for Pirelli 215/55-17 tires? for a 2017 Volt.

So there's a deal going on and I've actually been looking to pickup a set of the Pirelli Cinturatos.... I drive a lot, my 2017 already has about 16K on the clock.

So I know the stock size is 215/50-17, would there be any other adverse effects going with the 215/55-17 Pirelli tires, outside of the 3% difference in speedometer readings I'd get?

Was tempted to buy them now and just store them in the garage for the next 6 months or year till I actually need new tires.

Well, if the store has a good return policy, you could always buy them now, store safely, and mull over whether you want to keep them or not, then foot the bill to have them mounted later. You lose out on the mounting costs, but you gain time to make your decision.

BTW, what's the deal? I too am curious about getting these.
Oooh, that is a nice deal. Unfortunately, can't take advantage of "buy now, return later" if you decide not to keep them.

Thankfully, I'm still trying to offload other stuff from my garage, so no way I can buy them now and use them later. Good luck on the decision!
