Depends. Is your speedo currently correct?

Pretty sure the factory tires on '87 was 205 or 215's. Should be on the door sticker if you still have it.
Then if no one changed the speedo gear, going back to the factory sized tires will make your speedo correct for once.

If someone changed the speedo, then yep, it will be off. Like 3mph at highway speeds.
