Less. A larger diameter tire will have a larger circumference. In your case, a 28” will travel 88” with each revolution with 720 revolutions per mile. A 32” tire will travel 101” per revolution with 628 revolutions per mile. Your speedometer will be off by 14.6% meaning when your speedo reads 60, your actually doing almost 69mph. Your odometer will be low by the same amount. For every 100 miles you clock on your odometer, you’re actually traveling almost 115 miles.
