7.5 mm difference in hight (rolling diameter). It will make the
speedo read just a tiny bit low. The difference in treadlife
(increase) and traction (increase) will be so small as to be virtually
undetectible by the driver.

Someone calculated the ride height to be half that 7.5mm, which is
even a smaller difference.
The spare is the larger size, so, I guess the only difference might
be when the spare is put on.
Would the extra 10mm width (and about 3.75mm in height) matter when
the spare is being used?

Not much. With that small difference they will fit. In terms of
how long they last, won't make any difference. I recall doing some
calcs back in college that showed about one molecule worth of rubber
comes off each revolution. Certainly that small difference isn't
going to affect how many miles they last. If snow is a consideration,
wider is usually worse for traction, because the tire can't dig
throw the snow to the pavement as easily. Wider is also more susceptible
to hydroplaning. But on dry pavement, wider has more traction.
Use the manufacturer-recommended OEM size. Check the door sticker,
owner's manual, or call the car dealer.
The vehicle is 12 yeas old, plus you didn't say if the LOL was the
original owner. So the current tires are unlikely the original ones and
may not be the OEM size
With all this “gun control” talk, I haven’t heard one politician say how
they plan to take guns away from criminals and terrorists— just from law
