Eric...Wrong Rubber

Hey guys/gals
I have a set of 15rims that I got for my 8v. The car is really low so what I did to get that rim tucking look was get 195/45/15 which is the wrong ratio but I really didn't mind. Now I want to put them on my 16v which calls for 195/50/15. I know the odometer and speedo will be off a bit but barely noticable right? Its only off by a bit...its not like I have 35 series when I'm supposed to have 65.
Also I have heard that the wrong tire will cause engine problems because the timing and revs will be off. I don't see how this can be possible. SO does anyone out there know the problem with running smaller rubber?
