Question regarding 19's...

Ok, so I got my tires today for my 19 inch Hartge classic replicas. I called around to have them put on and one guy told me that 19 was wayyy to big for a 325, he said my suspension would get wrecked. Is this true? I put the old rim/tires up next to the new ones and there was only a little less than an inch difference in the total diameter. I realize they are lower profile and hence less side wall flex, but can this really do damage to my suspension? Also, how far off will my speedometer be with this change, and is there a way to fix that? Thanks for any info anyone can throw my way. By the way, I can definitely feel a power difference. I'll post some pics (although they are with a crappy webcam, I need a real digital camera) -
