I would go with the 17's for a couple reasons.
1. Price, both of rim and tires.
2. Weight, you will save some weight with a 17
3. Comfort, you will get more sidewall to absorb road abnormalities
4. Protection, that same thicker sidewall will protect the investment of your rims.

Only downside is performance, if you are looking for a street performance truck. The larger rims give you less sidewall, and therefore more lateral stability in cornering.

As far as the speedo calibration, you should be able to get a tire that is equivalent to what you are running and have no issues.
