Transmission question...

Going from stock 17's which are a 45 (don't recall the width. I believe 225), to 285/30/20, does this really affect the transmission in a negative way? I'm aware of the speedometer readout error, but someone is telling me it stresses the transmission. To me it doesn't sound right. Yea, a bigger wheel and tire will add rotational mass, but so does adding passengers and/or cargo. Anyone want to chime in?
